Registrant types for .uk domains

This article will explain registrant types for .uk Domain Names.

The ‘Registrant type’ field for all .uk domains is a way for Nominet (the official registry of .uk domains) to categorise the type of organisation that the domain is registered for.

Registrant types

When ordering your .uk website domain name, you are required to complete the registrant type field. This helps us to categorise the type of organisation that the registration is being made for and will, in turn, help in making subsequent changes to the domain name.

The list of acceptable values for the registrant type field is given below:

  • LTD – UK Limited Company
  • PLC – UK Public Limited Company
  • PTNR – UK Sole Trader
  • LLP – UK Limited Liability Partnership
  • IP – UK Industrial/Provident Registered Company
  • IND – UK Individual (representing self)
  • SCH – UK School
  • RCHAR – UK Registered Charity
  • GOV – UK Government Body
  • CRC – UK Corporation by Royal Charter
  • STAT – UK Statutory Body
  • OTHER – UK Entity that does not fit into any of the above (e.g. clubs, associations, many universities)
  • FIND – Non-UK Individual (representing self)
  • FCORP – Non-UK Corporation
  • FOTHER – Non-UK Entity that does not fit into any of the above (e.g. charities, schools, clubs, associations)

Please note: companies based in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man are classified as Foreign Organisations.

If you want to change the information associated with a domain in your 123 Reg account, such as the address and/or contact details, this can be done via our Control Panel. For details on how to do this, please read the following article: How do I modify the contact information for my domain name?

If you wish to change the Registrant or Organisation Name associated with your domain, you will need to contact our Support team.
