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.
There are no restrictions on .uk registrations which means that anyone can register one. If you already have a .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk web address and you registered it before 10th June, your .uk domain name may already have been reserved for you.

With shorter extensions becoming more popular, the .uk domain provides a means to shorten your existing web address, creating a far simpler way for visitors to access your website. It gets straight to the point and clearly shows you are based in the UK. And it’s familiar – 98% of people are aware of domain names ending in .UK.
The .uk extension offers businesses and individuals in the United Kingdom the choice, relevance and availability that is needed to gain a competitive advantage today. The new, shorter, more memorable domain name will help define owners as part of the UK online community.
.uk registration is perfect for anyone based in the UK who wants to expand their current domain portfolio and attract more customers.
