UK public sector organisations protected


A public benefit company that is a force for good in the UK digital economy and the global internet community, with the .UK registry at the centre of our work, delivering services that make our world more connected, inclusive and secure.


To provide a world class .UK namespace; operate critical national infrastructure that is safe, secure and resilient; and protect public services from cyber threat in the UK and internationally.

Who are we?

We want to create a world which is more connected, inclusive and secure. For 25 years we have been operating at the heart of the internet infrastructure as proud guardians of the .UK domain name registry. Our understanding of the Domain Name System (DNS) underpins a sophisticated cyber security capability used by governments to secure their networks. We aim to generate a surplus to invest back into our service and fund our public benefit activities.

Our Work

We are a world-leading domain name registry. We run .UK - part of the UK's critical national infrastructure - and other top level domains, including .bbc, .wales and .bentley.

Helping our environment

We are committed to reducing the negative impact our business activities may have on the environment and lowering our carbon emissions through our carbon reduction plan to support our net-zero 2050 goal. In FY22 we achieved carbon neutrality for our UK operations and global data centre use via PAS 2060 certification. We offset our measured carbon through an international deforestation and land-use change project in Indonesia, and our continued commitment to the UK Forestry through our investment in the Nominet Forest.

We invest in woodland creation in the UK to offset our carbon emissions. This will help to capture our CO2 over time while also providing other environmental benefits including flood alleviation, water quality improvements, habitat creation and provide a source of sustainable timber. Our Nominet Forest will help the UK meet the target of net-zero by 2050.
