Unless you pay £36 upfront (£2.50 a month eqv). If you don't know what I mean by SSL warning take a look at the domain I just got from this deal here



That's really got nothing to do with the domain you've purchased here, use something like Let's Encrypt or even front with a CDN like Cloudflare that gives you an easy SSL configuration. Numerous free options nowadays and more a matter of good practice than anything to do with the registrar.

Good deal for simple 1 year registration. Could then transfer out now or later to a registrar like Cloudflare and pay only registry costs for the next year(s).

Don’t people use .uk rather than .co.uk these days?


No, the only reason .uk exists is to milk more profit. Serves no advantage to most.

Doesn't matter that it is shorter, co.uk has been around a lot longer and is more established. Companies will pick up their .UK to protect copyright, nobody will be marketing off it.

But you pay for hosting with them, right?
What's email starter hosting mean?

How do you do this?


You would still have to pay for registration somewhere else, LCN are my main registrar for all my domains though. Support is solid
This deal should be at the top!

Yep people should always get an SSL certificate these days for their websites - safari seems to be the only browser not bothered a site isn't https://

Yep £10.74 for year 2 - so those taking up the offer should keep that in my mind

Of course one could always transfer the domain to a cheaper domain registrar prior to the renewal to save a few quid
Cool... as in Cool so Hot

How do you do this?


Generally you unlock the domain, get a key from your current registrar and then give your new registrar that key

You can get them free via SSLForFree (Let's Encrypt) or Cloudflare

No need to pay for an SSL these days. Let’s Encrypt offer them for free and are excellent.
What's the catch?

Just use cloudflare as a CDN, also free, gives you the certificate.

Hot. Can setup a static site in azure for free too, just upload with visual studio code. Great if you just need a simple site.

I noticed car.co.uk launched recently, they're redirecting the .uk to the .co.uk, to prove your point. They had the choice of what to launch on for an absolutely premium domain, and they chose the .co.uk.

Free.co.uk recently sold for £160,000, the buyer was not interested in free.uk (it was offered for £20k from the same seller), so many aren't even bothering with taking the .uk just to cover themselves.

.uk would have been great 25 years ago... but I'm not convinced it will ever overthrow .co.uk.

Exactly this. I own several co.uk domains and for years was sent emails saying I should buy the .uk equivalent with a rather blackmailing message saying it was "exclusively reserved for you but will be made available to the public soon" and "act now to protect your brand from being registered by someone else". That risk exists because they created it.

Also trying to tell people your site is somethingsomething.uk results in the tedious conversation where it's noted down incorrectly and you have to explain it's not co.uk.

That's interesting because I've recently bought both and I'm planning on redirecting from. co.uk to just .uk as it's cleaner. Doesn't matter which people use of course.

Just use cloud flare, it's free and provides ddos protection and caching. Every time I spin up a new site I just made sure it's added to my cloudflare

If you're completely new to it all, go to WordPress.com and have a play there - free hosting. Then if/when you want more (it's limited), you can setup a self-hosted WordPress.org site where you'll need to find your own hosting.

It does if you're even remotely interested in SEO. Having links point to multiple domains lowers their value.

(Firstly thanks to the original poster - I got a domain - not sure I have any particular use for it, but it's free…)

I was able to turn off the auto renewal straight away. (Under the Manage option).

And I used a card which will expires this year, hopefully that also prevents any charge after that date (??).

I meant it wouldn't matter if people accidentally typed in .co.uk as it would redirect, rather than promoting and manually linking to both on the site or elsewhere. Surely that's fine?

As long as you 301 the .co.uk to the .uk to catch any stray links or visitors you'll be fine, no worries on SEO.

On the .co.uk vs .uk battle for dominance, you'd be nuts to launch on a .uk if you didn't own and redirect the .co.uk, because people are so used to .co.uk. But you could happily launch on .co.uk and not own or care about the .uk. If large launch sites (like free.co.uk or car.co.uk) keep opting for .co.uk, or if more established sites don't make the switch from .co.uk to .uk (say bbc.co.uk, for example), then .uk has got a huge way to go.

I think the choice between .co.uk and .uk comes down to personal preference, I also think they suit different domains / websites. I have sites on both extensions.
