Position your business website on the web with a .co.uk domain

.co.uk is the specific country domain for Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Show your presence in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland with your own .co.uk ending and increase the trust in your brand.

Why should I register my own .co.uk domain?

First of all, the .co.uk domain is a country-coded address for the United Kingdom. Why should you choose to register a .co.uk domain over any other domain extension? The answer is simple! You can show your origins by identifying your website with a .co.uk domain extension.


Let your website visitors or customers know where you are from. As a foreign company, you can also use the .co.uk domain to promote and display your business presence in the UK. The .co.uk domain can also be a great alternative to other TLDs in cases where they are already taken. With over 10 million registered .co.uk users, you'll be joining a large group of satisfied website owners!

Which domain better suits my needs - .com or .co.uk?

The .com domain is the most commonly used domain extension worldwide (with more than 118 million registered domains). The domain name ".com" originates from the word "commercial" and its original purpose was to be used by commercial organisations. But by opening it up for unrestricted registrations, this initial distinction got lost.


Today, a lot of websites with no commercial background own a .com domain, so new website owners have to ask themselves, which domain is better for a new website - .com or .co.uk? The answer is simple: "it depends on the purpose of your website". If your main target audience is located in the UK, then a .co.uk ending is a great choice.


This domain extension underlines the local orientation of the content of your site. However, a .com domain has a greater acceptance worldwide and is a great choice if your content addresses an audience outside the borders of the United Kingdom. The best way to satisfy all of your website visitors is to buy a .com and a .co.uk domain. Both domains can point to your website simultaneously and 1&1 offers great prices for both domain extensions.

  • Can I transfer an existing co.uk domain to 1&1 from my current provider?

    Yes. Transferring an existing .co.uk domain to 1&1 is simple. In contrast to domains like .com, .org or .info, UK domains (.co.uk or .org.uk) do not require authorisation codes. Instead, they use IPS tags, which were implemented by the UK registry (Nominet) in order to control domain name transfers. There is a step by step instruction on our help center for transferring your domain to 1&1. First you have to choose the option "Transfer domain from another provider" within the 1&1 Control Panel. Then you have to insert your domain name und click on the button "transfer domain". In the next step, you will need to contact the company where your domain is currently registered and have the domain's IPS tag changed to "SCHLUND". Now, the transfer process can be initiated.
