Why is .uk domain name ideal for you and your business?

The .uk extension is a shorter, sharper and snappier alternative to a .co.uk. It shows your visitors that you are located in the UK and, as it's shorter, it puts the emphasis on your brand or company name - exactly where it should be. It also brings us in line with other large country-code registries such as .fr for France and .de for Germany, joining the rest of the world.

The .uk extension is for forward-thinking businesses and individuals, and is set to become the new standard for UK based websites, so make sure you grab yours now as it's available for order with 123-reg.

"We love the fact that .uk domains present an opportunity to make our web address even shorter, more memorable and 'to the point'."
