Nominet is the manager of the .uk domain name. It was founded in 1996 as a not-for-profit company, and it operates the registry for,,, .uk domains, and some other top level domains. In partnership with the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre it also operates the Protective DNS to block public sector IT systems accessing sites known to contain malicious content.

We joined Nominet both to act as domain registrars for .UK domains, but also to have our voice on matters of UK Internet governance.
