Namesco Limited, the domain name registry for .uk domain names, says that 77% of its British customers prefer a .uk rather than a .com domain suffix for their websites.

We are pleased that our customers are choosing to buy a domain name that reflects their national identity.

Providing web hosting for over 400,000 domains registered for 160,000 clients, Namesco Limited supports over 300 different worldwide suffixes. For its British customer base, the company has found that 77% of consumers prefer to have a .uk domain registration, which includes either,, or suffixes, in lieu of a .com.

For customers who buy a domain name under the suffix, the company offers a rate of £9.99 for a 2 year registration plan, while a .com costs £24.99 for the 2 year registration. Namesco’s web hosting service includes a POP3/Webmail email account, unlimited email forwarding, a free demo of Web Page Creator, DNS control, and an online control panel. The domain registration process begins with a multifaceted name search on the company’s homepage. This tool enables users to check for specific domain names, search by keyword, and via a thesaurus option that accepts user keyword combinations to suggest alternative names.

Sarah Bull, Marketing Executive for Namesco Limited, says, “We are pleased that our customers are choosing to buy a domain name that reflects their national identity. The fact that more than three-fourths of our customers are using the .uk suffix will help us drive future sales initiatives to further satisfy our client base.”

Namesco also integrates a multitude of services that are detailed on its site. In addition to a comprehensive domain name search and domain registration, the web hosting company allows customers to transfer domain names to any of its web hosting or email plans easily. The company also specializes in dial-up Internet access, dedicated SSL certificates, and a search engine submission program. In addition, the company can provide .uk users, and customers using all other suffixes when they buy domain names, with services for optimizing sites for search engines, accepting secure payments, or even site redesign.

“As we continue to grow our service offerings that use the latest technologies, Namesco facilitates a Web connection for its British customers as well as clients from around the world. Whether consumers buy domain name suffixes such as .uk or one of 300 others worldwide, we offer a full range of services,” added Bull.
