Register a .gov.uk domain

 

Register your .gov.uk domain at Getdotted

As with all our domains, you'll get a free email address and one-page website so you can get up and running straight away

Having a .gov.uk domain for your organisation will increase trust in both your website and your emails. You may even find you receive a boost in search engines.

Unlike other domain types where the registration process is automated, registering a .gov.uk domain is a largely manual process, with registration restricted to organisations that meet specific requirements. More information on applying for a .gov.uk domain can be found at https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-and-manage-a-gov-uk-domain-name.

Why register with GetDotted?

We know your domain, email and website are important to you. We've been established for over 20 years, and are a Nominet Accredited Registrar - we know what we're doing when it comes to domains.

Along with our sister company Freeola, we can reliably and safely manage your website hosting and email addresses using our own servers contained within resilient, secure UK-based data-centres. Our support team are UK-based too, and available 7 days a week (excl. bank holidays) to assist with anything you need.

If you'd prefer to host elsewhere, you can easily manage the DNS on your domain to point it at the services you require.

A .gov.uk domain can currently be registered for 2 years at £115.00 ex VAT.
