The .UK domain extension is launched today. Register now!

The .UK extension is out today!

From today (10th of June), the .UK extension is available. This new, shorter extension will coexist with .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk and other extensions from the UK Domain Family.


Already part of the UK Domain Family?
  • If you own a .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .net.uk, .ltd.uk or .plc.uk domain, your .uk domain is automatically reserved especially for you during five years to keep you safe from cybersquatting.
  • If you want to use your .UK domain instead of, or in addition to, your current domain(s), you have the opportunity to register it now by calling us on or emailing us at domains@SSL247.co.uk. We will be glad to help you!
  • After five years, your automatic reservation will end. On 10th June 2019, if you haven't registered your .UK domain, it will be available to anyone.

Want to join the UK Domain Family?
  • If there are no existing domains equivalent to yours, you can register your domain with a .UK extension now. This will allow you to emphasise your brand with a shorter and sharper domain name.
  • You can contact us on or at domains@SSL247.co.uk to check your domain’s availability and register it!

If you want more information about our domain name services, you can consult our our Domain Names page or contact us.
