Show your pride

Draw in the locals with a .uk domain. A .uk domain is a quick and easy way to tell your visitors you’re a UK-based brand instantly.

Put your brand name first

If you want a memorable site name, then .uk is the domain to register. It’s short, snappy and works for a variety of different businesses.

Stay protected

If you’ve already got a .co.uk or other type of domain, getting a .uk is a smart move to protect competitors from registering it themselves.

How to choose a .uk domain name

We’ve got some tips to ensure you pick only the very best .uk domain name out there.

Size does matter

Although domains can be up to 63 characters, try to keep users in mind. While a .uk domain keeps things short, it’s best to make your name easy to remember to reduce misspellings.

Steer clear of numbers

Using numbers in your .uk domain name can make typing it confusing. Do they use digits or words? If a number’s needed, register a domain for each format and point it to your main site.

Keep it simple

Including complex words in your .uk domain name can make it difficult for users to find you. If you can’t use an easier name, register multiple .uk domains that cover misspellings.

Avoid special characters

Try not to use underscores and exclamation points when registering your .uk domain. Your .uk domain can contain hyphens, but not as the first or last character of the domain.
