.CO.UK Domain Registration or Transfer

What makes .CO.UK so special?

.CO.UK is a second-level domain to .UK - the country code top-level domain name for the United Kingdom and one of the most popular top-level domains on the Internet. It can only be registered by UK related entities (citizens, residents, or organizations) and is used both for commercial and general purposes. Since it is not possible to register a domain name directly under the root .UK extension, all applicable registrants could only register second-level domains to the main domain .UK. Besides .CO.UK, other second-level .UK domains include .ME.UK and .ORG.UK.

How to register a .CO.UK domain name

In order to register a .CO.UK domain name you must be a UK citizen or resident, or you need to register the domain for a UK registered company or organization. You can take your .CO.UK domain name for a period of 2 years, as per its registry's policy. Both the registration and transfer of all .UK extensions go with a full pack of DNS management options, including Custom MX & A Records, CNAME Records, NS, AAAA, TXT and SRV Records. You can manage DNS settings and WHOIS information and renew domains from the Domain Manager tool in your web hosting account's Control Panel.
