Hi Neil,

I have a particular domain name in mind for my upcoming Web site which I could be interested in registering with you guys... a search tells me that .com and .co.uk are taken and the nearest I can get to it is .org.uk. You say that 'org' is popular with charitable organisations... my question is can I use such a domain name with a commercial objective?

There's no legal requirement attached to using .org or .org.uk domain names. They're 'intended' for non-profit-making organizations, but available for general use. I would say it just needs to be obvious on your website that you're a business. And obviously:

"If you are based in the UK and run a business web site to sell or promote your products or services then make sure that you are meeting your legal obligations.

Note that as long as your business is physically based in the UK then UK laws will usually apply - even if your web site is hosted in another country."


If it's brokenless, don't suffix it...

Thanks, I gave up trying to register the domain because it didn't recognise my email address... what a joke, everyone else is using it. laugh
