The .com domain is the most commonly used domain extension worldwide (with more than 118 million registered domains).
The domain name ".com" is an abbreviation of "commercial" and it was originally used by commercial organisations. But with the opening of unrestricted registrations, this initial distinction disappeared. Today, a lot of websites with no commercial background own a .com domain, so new website owners have to ask themselves which domain better suits their needs — .com or .co.uk?
The answer depends on the purpose of your website. If your main target audience is located in the UK, .co.uk is a great choice. This domain extension emphasises your local credentials. However, a .com domain has greater acceptance worldwide and helps you appeal to an audience beyond the borders of the United Kingdom. For maximum outreach, use the .com and the .co.uk domains simultaneously. IONOS offers great prices for both domain extensions.
Yes. Transferring an existing .co.uk domain to IONOS is simple. In contrast to domains like .com, .org or .info, UK domains (.co.uk or .org.uk) do not require authorisation codes. Instead, they use IPS tags, which were implemented by the UK registry (Nominet) in order to control domain name transfers. There is a step by step guide on our help centre page for transferring your domain to IONOS.
