Public Benefit

Connectivity, inclusivity and security for our world

We want a world that is connected, inclusive and secure, and believe that technology has a fundamental and positive part to play. We run vital internet infrastructure, and are proud to support millions of businesses, organisations and individuals using .UK domains. We are using DNS technology to protect public services. Our work funds an ambitious social impact campaign that aims to tackle the challenge of growing up in a digital world.

The one million programme is funded by our work at the heart of the internet infrastructure. We are proud of the contribution that we make  – as a responsible business, as advocates for a vibrant digital future, and as creators of technology used to tackle challenges around the world.

Nominet delivers the National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) Protective DNS (PDNS). PDNS secures over 900 UK public sector organisations ranging from local authorities to central government, and 1000+ organisations under the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN), including many NHS Trusts. PDNS helps ensure public services are protected from cyber disruption.
