Details

The UK government manages the .gov.uk domain name registry for digital services that are part of the administration of the state, so that they can be identified as authoritative and trustworthy.

Read Naming and registering websites to learn more about:

  • which organisations can register .gov.uk domain names
  • how domain names must be structured

Public sector bodies may register .gov.uk domain names for 4 purposes:

  • email
  • websites, including those for campaigns, education, information and transactions
  • page redirection (for example, alternative spellings of domain names)
  • to maintain access to information on the UK Government Website Archive

Domain registration is requested via an internet service provider (ISP) to the technical administrators of the .gov.uk second level domain, Jisc. Jisc acts as the domain name registry on behalf of Cabinet Office, holding information on which domain names are registered and who owns them.

Cabinet Office is responsible for approving requests for new domain names and any appeals. Read more about the .gov.uk domain name approvals and appeals process.
