GoDaddy today announced that more than 1 million .UK domain are registered with the registrar in the United Kingdom. .UK domains refer to the ccTLD domains of the United Kingdom: .co.uk, .uk, .org.uk and .me.uk.
In fact, GoDaddy estimates that 25 percent of Britain’s most popular domains are now registered through GoDaddy. GoDaddy claims that the percentage is based on external and internal information available for the most popular selling domains in the UK, including .UK domains and .COM domains.
On achieving the milestone Andrew Low Ah Kee, Executive Vice President, GoDaddy International, said, “Reaching 1 million .UK domains demonstrates the value GoDaddy brings to customers by helping them create powerful digital identities. What is even more exciting to us than the milestone itself is the fact that we’ve grown our .UK domains under management by over 50% in the last 24 months. Our organic growth is a reflection that our purpose-built product and exceptional customer care resonate strongly with the UK market. We’re committed to growing our UK business and are excited to continue supporting the digital revolution taking place in the UK.”
Russell Haworth, Managing Director at Nominet, the official registry for UK domain names, commented: “It’s a significant achievement to reach a million .uk and co.uk registrations, and the rate of growth is impressive. Like GoDaddy, we are committed to making the case for more businesses having their own space online, helping create new opportunities for us all.”

GoDaddy opened its customer care centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 2014, giving its UK customers the added advantage of working with specialised support teams located locally and in the US.
