.UK Domain Management Information

This microsite is operated by Island Networks (Registrar) Limited

About us

We are part of the country code registry for .GG (Guernsey) and .JE (Jersey) and are  the legacy domain registrar for domains that have been registered directly with the registry. If you are looking for information on .GG or .JE domain names, please see our main website at CHANNELISLES.NET.

This site principally contains information about the management of .UK names that are registered through us and is intended for existing customers.

Island Networks (Registrar) Ltd is incorporated in Alderney, C.I.  In addition to managing direct registration of .GG and JE names, we are also a Nominet Accredited Channel Partner (registrar) for .UK names. We are responsible, as your registrar, for the management of all .UK domains recorded as registered on the ALDERNEY 'tag' in the .UK register.

You can confirm whether a domain name is managed by us by visiting the Nominet WHOIS page. If the 'Registrar is listed as 'ALDERNEY', that is us.

Registering .UK domain names

Please note that, for the time being, we are not accepting requests to register new domains ending in .UK unless you are an existing customer.

Contacting Registrants of .UK Names

If you are a third party wishing to contact the owner of a domain name on our Nominet Tag for any reason, such as making offers to purchase, or for IP rights enforcement, please note that due to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), the  Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2017, and our own privacy policy we do not normally disclose information about the registrant over that published on the Nominet WHOIS service unless one of the standard exemptions under the Law applies, for example:

  • for the prevention and detection of crime;
  • the protection of the rights (including intellectual property rights) and freedoms of others;
  • inquiries concerning the collection of taxes and other similar obligations.

In cases not covered by the above we may, as a courtesy, forward your message to the registrant without disclosing their details.
