  • .gov.uk registration?

    Does anyone here have any experience with .gov.uk registration? I've been asked by the Parish Council to investigate them getting a .gov.uk and it looks like they qualify - the docs mention an £80 cost, but I understand it's not quite as straightforward for initial registration.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, we do them (https://www.freethought-internet.co.uk/domains/gov-uk/) for £120/2 years including VAT and there are all kind of fun rules around them from a naming point of view. It's all handled manually on the registry side as well.

    Parish councils can get them just fine, but there's a particular way of working out the specific domain name that they're allowed. I think you also have to have a website as well, you can't just use it for email.
