.co.uk domain name extension

Choose the leading UK domain name extension for your website! The .co.uk extension is by far the most popular.

Applications for a .co.uk domain name are open to anyone. It is therefore widely used by many merchant sites to establish a digital presence in the country, and will inspire confidence and be promoted by UK search engines.

Everything you need to know about .co.uk

The .co.uk extension was created in 1985 for commercial websites in the United Kingdom. Any person or company with a commercial activity may register a .co.uk domain name.

Since June 2014, it has also been possible to reserve a domain name with the short extension “.uk”, provided that you have a UK postal address as a minimum requirement.

It’s worth nothing that if the same domain name exists with different extensions, the owner of the one registered with the .co.uk extension will have priority to get the .uk extension.

The Registry of .co.uk and .uk domain names is called Nominet.

Advantages of the .co.uk extension

The .co.uk extension is the leading domain for the United Kingdom. This area greatly facilitates the sale of goods in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

An e-commerce website with a .co.uk domain name will have its delivery configured by default for the UK. Prices are also displayed in pound sterling, the country's official currency.

A .co.uk domain is an asset for your national SEO. With this extension, search engines will identify your website as a website dedicated to business in the UK. Your product pages are therefore more likely to appear at the top of SERPs for British internet users.
