Domain names

We’re a Nominet Member and JISC accredited domain registrar, which means we can register all UK domain names as well as government and academic extensions.

UK domain names

UK domain names

Your domain name is more than just an address – it’s an asset that stays with your business. It’s important to make sure it’s correctly registered to you as an individual or, for limited companies, the organisation.

We’re a Nominet Member able to register all UK domains and we make each new registration manually to make sure the listing is correct. We can also advise you if you think your domain is incorrectly registered, and help you get back control.

The cost of all UK domain names is £7.50 per annum.

Academic and government domain names

As well as being a Nominet Member, Hut Six Digital is also a JISC approved registrar of academic and government domain names –

.ac.uk, .gov.uk, .gov.scot, .gov.wales, .llyw.cymru

In order to register one of these domain names you must prove that your organisation meets the eligibility criteria. Applications are subject to approval, but this is usually very quick.

Domain validated (DV)

This is the most common type of SSL certificate. You will be required to upload a file to your site to prove you own it, or in some cases this can be done by matching your email address against the publicly held whois information.

Organisation validated (OV)

This type of certificate provides further trust to website visitors by verifying the organisation itself. For companies, this may mean cross referencing with Companies House. For individuals, you may be required to supply a copy of your driving license or other documents. The organisations name is then listed in the certificate itself.

Extended validation (EV)

On top of the steps taken for an OV certificate, further checks are made to verify existence of the organisation. This is the gold standard in SSL certificates and, once completed, enables additional trust indicators like the fully green browser address bar.

Jo has been personable and efficient in setting up my website. She did a great job of understanding what I wanted and providing guidance from her wealth of experience.
