This month marks the first anniversary of the .uk domain, which was introduced on the 10th of June 2014. More than 330,000 .uk domains have been registered in the past year, meaning they have been an extremely popular option for businesses and people who want to expand their online opportunities.
To mark this first anniversary, euk.host are offering .uk domains for just £1 plus VAT for the first year. This offer was launched at 8am on the 10th of June, and will be available until midday on the 31st of July. People purchasing between these dates will also be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win digital consultancy or Apple gift cards.
The advantages of .uk domains are numerous. They are shorter and sharper than other domains such as .co.uk, and a short, concise domain name is always likely to be more memorable than a longer one. A .uk domain lends a website credibility, as these domains are trusted by site visitors; in fact, research has shown that 4 in 5 people prefer .uk websites when they are browsing online. If your site has a .uk suffix, you have a great chance of converting your site visitors into paying customers.
After a successful first year, it seems apparent that .uk domains will continue to grow in popularity. Whether you are registering your website for the first time or have an existing website already, snapping up a .uk domain could give your company a real boost, aiding with SEO and increasing the trust between you and your customers. With this amazing offer ongoing until the end of July, now is the perfect time to do so.
