Buy your domain with confidence
We are the official registry for all UK domain names. Our domain search
and domain name comparison
tools will help you to check that your chosen UK domain is available, then present you with a selection of accredited registrars to choose from, giving you information on each so that you make an informed decision to buy a domain with confidence. If your chosen website name is unavailable, click 'Show Alternatives' to see similar domains that are available to buy.
Choosing a domain name
Our domain name search tool
can help you to check whether your perfect domain is available, allowing you to find out who is the owner if it's already been registered. You can also use the tool to find alternative domains that are available. Check out our Choosing a domain name
page for some useful tips to help you choose and buy a domain name.
You may not be aware, but some of the details you use to register a domain name are made publicly available by default. This includes your name, address, and registrar, which you might not want to be seen. Our registrars provide a domain privacy service
, allowing you to prevent your details from being recorded in the public database and, instead, replacing them with a generic proxy.
