In the early days of the internet there was a relatively small number of “top level domains”; people in the UK would typically register a .co.uk, .org.uk, .org or .com domain. Nowadays, a very large number of domain extensions are available.

Domain names are made up of different parts. The top level domain (TLD) is the extension, such as .uk or .com. The part before the extension is the name. So, in the domain example.co.uk, the name is example and the extension is .co.uk.

In case you are wondering, www is not part of a domain name – it is a (very common) subdomain. If you are buying a domain name you purchase a domain like example.co.uk, but not www.example.com.


Finding extensions

The Register a new domain page includes a Browse extentions by category section that shows the available top level domains. By default it will show the most popular extensions but many other categories are available. For instance, if you run a pub or restaurant you will find that you can buy a .bar, .pub or .cafe domain.

Filtering domain extensions related to 'food and drink'.
Fancy a .bar, .pub or .cafe domain?


Most of the extension categories are fairly obvious. However, there are two that might need an explanation:

  • ccTLD are country code top-level domains. These domains are reserved for countries and territories. For instance, domains ending in .uk are domains managed by a body in the United Kingdom (Nominet) and .eu domains are overseen by the European Registry for Internet Domains (EURid).
  • gTLD domains are generic top-level domains. These domains include traditional extensions such as .com as well as hundreds of recently created top level domains, such as the .pub and .cafe domains.

A full list of available extensions is available below.


Variations on a domain

When you register a domain the system will check if the domain is available. If the domain has already been taken the domain registration page will list a number of similar domains that are available. Often, you will find that adding a word or putting a dash between different words works. For instance, as at July 2019 the domain yummiefood.com has been registered but yummie-food.com is available.

Valid domain names

Different domain names have different rules for which characters are allowed in the domain name. For more top level domains the rules are as follows:

  • The domain name has to between 3 and 63 characters long.
  • Stressed vowels (à, é etc.) and special characters (£, + etc.) are not allowed.
  • Dashes are allowed, but not as the first or last character.
  • Numbers are allowed.

Available extensions

The domains page doesn’t list all the domains you can purchase from us – there are so many difference top level domains that the list would become rather unwieldy. The full list of available extensions as per August 2019 includes 514 extensions.

The prices for the top level domains vary quite a bit. Please contact us if you are interested in buying a domain with an extension that is not listed on the domain registration page.
