The UK Domain by Nominet

The UK Domain is run by Nominet, the official registry for all UK domain names. Nominet has managed and run the .UK registry for over 25 years.

We want to create a world which is more connected, inclusive and secure and our social impact programmes help improve the lives of young people in the UK.

About .UK Domains

There are four UK domain extensions, each with a unique offering and proposition.

One of the most established and popular domains in the world, .co.uk is a great choice for business and enterprise in the UK. The .uk domain is shorter, distinctive and designed for both businesses and individuals.

For charities, .org.uk domains offer the ideal online space to champion causes, communities and not for profit organisations. While for personal projects, .me.uk domains are ideal to build a unique online presence to showcase hobbies and talents.

The UK Domain as a resource

The UK Domain website offers an online comparison tool where registrants can search for available UK domain names and view a selection of accredited registrars who they can purchase their new domain with. Registrants can also filter the results based on services offered such as website builder packages or hosting to find the best partner for their new domain purchase.

If a registrant is looking for assistance then our Help Centre has useful tips and advice on:
