    Hello guys,

    I need someone to help me register .co.uk domain and keep it registered.

    I've had a lot of such domains in a past, but last year I've tried to get a few and I just typed out any random data and of course Nominet (I believe it's called like that) fucked me over at a time :) I didn't had time or will to bother and sorting it out, but I do have now.

    So any advice would be appreciated how to get it up and running and keep it up and running.

    Any input is more then welcome.

    Thank you.

    These TLDs are harder to mask as there's no privacy available.
    You either need a legit person to front for you ( a family member maybe ) and they register it in their name.

    Thank you for your reply. I've learned that hard way last year.
    This is not anything shady or heavy spam related. Just one domain to include in PBN network, that's all.

    I've added data last time but it seems that I've have not hit proper street street address last time or area or something like that and they contacted me.

    If I don't find any decent solution I'll probably give it a go once more with some existing whois data and new email.

    From what I can see it is open to all:
    https://www.namecheap.com/domains/registration/cctld/co-uk.aspx

    Who can use .co.uk?
    Although the .co.uk domain is intended for commercial enterprises and business use, it is available to anyone in the world, business or not. Allocations are on a first-come, first-served basis; there are no geographic requirements for registration. This domain is maintained by Nominet, and Namecheap is an official registrar.

    Just last time I've typed in some non existing address, and this time I'll try with real address.

    Depending on the registrar could you not tell them it is being registered for a client , but in your name ?

    Dropped you a PM with another option.

    It's not too hard for Uk, .au is harder but still possible too.
    *Always use a different register (or different payment methods)- been fucked off before from this.
    Sometimes they ask for your business ID.
    Here is the UK website. http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk//wcframe?name=accessCompanyInfo
    Literally just search your domain in that database in case you get investigated.
    I just google macdonalds in a random city or something and copy/paste the address & phone. Works like a charm.

    For .com.au domain you need an ABN which requires you to be an Australian citizen and a fee of $100 per year. Although there's a way around it.
    Same thing as before look your domain up in the search: http://abr.business.gov.au/
    Copy an ABN that the entity name closely matches your domain name. When it gets manually checked nothing will appear wrong and will pass through.
    And again just google a random food place in a random city in the country you are trying to target.

    Don't worry about privacy protection as you are just creating a person, make sure the email looks like the domain or person.
    It's pretty fail safe the only problem I see that could happen is that person you are copying stops his business & the ID/ABN becomes inactive.

    Hope this helps :D

    And this is actually entire method. I was about to try something similar and actually with same registrar! Thank you as well for the heads up on that.

    I'll probably go with GoDaddy this time as @MisterF recently posted or this registrar if anyone is looking for promo for .co.uk :)

    I was also curious about how it goes for .au domains and I didn't even had to bother to ask. Thank you very much. :)

    Try namecheap, mate. I've had several international domains with them, never had questions asked.
