I currently have .co.uk with name.com who do not provide a .uk domain. Is there anyway I can register a .uk domain with a different provider for this domain?

  • You have to transfer the domain to a register who does offer uk reg – themihai Aug 29 '14 at 1:55

  • how is that? Last time I've checked they all asked me to transfer them the .co.uk domain. – themihai Nov 12 '14 at 23:45
  • See my answer...try names.co.uk – DD. Nov 19 '14 at 12:21

Some registrars will allow you to register the .uk by verifying ownership of the .co.uk address. For example, I registered the address medexpress.co.uk with name.com who do not offer .uk domains. I registered the medexpress.uk with names.co.uk, after supplying verification that I own medexpress.co.uk.

However, some registrar's such as 123-reg would not allow me to register the .uk address without transferring the .co.uk address.

Yes, you can register it, just register the .uk at another registrar.

  • Not all registrars will let you do this. e.g. 123-reg will not register a .uk address if you do not have the .co.uk address with them. – DD. Nov 19 '14 at 12:20
