Who are we?

We want to create a world which is more connected, inclusive and secure. For over 20 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 the UK government and global enterprises to secure their networks. As the world around us changes, we are exploring the potential of emerging technologies. Our commercial success funds an ambitious programme to improve the lives of 1 million young people through technology.

Our Work

We are a world-leading domain name registry. We run .UK - part of the UK's critical national infrastructure - and over 70 top level domains, including .bbc, .wales and .london.
