Establish your online presence in the United Kingdom by register a domain name from the .UK family. With the new .UK, you now have a short and direct way to market yourself as being all things .UK with .CO.UK you get an established, trusted and reliable domain extension, perfect for your online business. For the non-profits, there is .ORG.UK and for a site that's just about you, there is the .ME.UK.

Please note that as a courtesy to .CO.UK domain owners, they have the first rights to their domain name on .UK. In fact, Nominet is giving .CO.UK domain owners a full five years to decide if they want to purchase their domain name on .UK. For .ORG.UK and .ME.UK owners, Nominet says, "in the small proportion of instances where there could be competition - e.g. where one person holds, for example, .CO.UK and another holds, for example, .ORG.UK - the shorter domain will be offered to the .CO.UK registrant." Similarly, if it is between .ORG.UK and .ME.UK, .ORG.UK takes priority. The only difference in priority occurs if, for example, the .ORG.UK was registered before 10/28/13 23:59 UTC and the .CO.UK was registered after that date. In this case, .ORG.UK has priority over .CO.UK. If you aren't sure who has the rights to your domain name (or the domain name you had in mind), the best way of checking who has the rights to it is via the rights checker.

why choose dynadot

Company Philosophy

Our goal is to provide our customers with world class registration and hosting services for a reasonable price. Most of our site is fully automated, allowing us to offer some of the lowest prices in the industry. At the same time we strive to provide excellent customer service, and helpful responses to all questions. If anything is not to your satisfaction, feel free to contact us, and we will do our best to resolve the situation.

financial stability

Dynadot is a debt-free, privately held company. Our solid financial infrastructure provides stability in an industry where companies appear and disappear frequently. We plan to operate and grow this business for a long time, and we do not intend to go public or become acquired by a faceless corporation.

local operation

Dynadot has an office in your backyard! Since our founding in San Mateo, California in 2002, our team has grown each year. So, in 2011, we decided to open our first international office in Beijing, China. Since then, we have opened another office in China and one in Toronto, Canada. So rest assured, when you register a .CA with us, you're buying from Canadians just like you!

Protect Your Brand with a .UK Domain

If you already own a .CO.UK domain, we recommend registering that same domain name on .UK to protect your brand. As it says above, you have the first rights to your .CO.UK domain name on .UK and you should definitely take advantage of that! If you own a domain name on another TLD and are looking to break into the UK market, registering your domain name on .UK and/or .CO.UK is a great way to not only protect your brand, but also add to the branding of your existing website with a recognizable TLD to your customers. If you don't want to set up a separate website, you can simply redirect traffic back to your main site with our free domain forwarding .

.UK Domain Restrictions

Please note that to register a .UK domain name, you must have an admin in the UK. For more information, see our help file on setting up a .UK default admin. This requirement does not apply to .CO.UK, .ORG.UK, or .ME.UK.

If you are ordering a .UK domain name that you have rights to, you will need to make sure you enter the same registrant name as your .CO.UK, .ORG.UK, or .ME.UK upon registration of your .UK.
