    Hey There,

    I am here to know about how can i purchase .uk domain extension. I have .co.uk and now I also want to purchase .uk but as per Godaddy, I am uable to do so because have no residential address.

    Is there any way to purchase .uk extension?

    UK/EU address is NOT required for .UK
    But your data must be validated by Nominet (automatic mode) OR with your registrar (manual mode).

    If you see such record in WHOIS (autovalidation failed)...
    Data validation:
    Nominet was not able to match the registrant's name and/or address against a 3rd party source

    Then validate your registrant details with your registrar - or after 30 days your domains will be suspended.

    So GoDaddy is wrong.

    I recently regged .UK @Dynadot
    Nominet wasn't able to validate my Ukrainian data - so I did it with Dynadot team...
    And now WHOIS shows:
    Data validation:
    The registrar is responsible for having checked these contact details

    Yes, no any restrictions regarding .UK
    Just don't forget to manually validate your data (as described above) - if automatic validation failed.
