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

The UK Domain Family includes four 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 latest addition to the family, .uk, is the shorter, distinctive domain that’s 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 ending 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 both getting a domain and then using and managing your domain.

If they need some ideas then our UK Domain Leaders features a range of inspirational case studies detailing how other businesses are using their domains and the positive outcomes business owners have seen from their business being online.
