A reminder on Nominet’s policy for .ltd.uk domains:
All registrants in .ltd.uk and .plc.uk must be incorporated companies (not partnerships of any type or unincorporated companies) listed on the index of company and corporate names (‘the Names Register’) maintained under section 714 of the Companies Act 1985 (or later equivalents);
(for .ltd.uk domains) must be entitled to use ‘Limited’, ‘cyfyngedig’, ‘ltd.’ or’cyf’. in their corporate name; or
(for .plc.uk domains) must be entitled to use ‘Public Limited Company’, ‘Cwmni cyfyngedig cyhoeddus’, ‘Plc.’ or ‘ccc’. in their corporate name.

Please note that when applying for .ltd.uk or .plc.uk domains in your control panel or via the API, you must also send an email with the company number and registered name of the company to us at email@example.com.
Failure to do so will result in a delay in the application for the name being made.
Applications for these domains are made manually and are also assessed manually by Nominet so please bear in mind that confirmation of registration will take longer than with standard domains.
If you believe you have tried to register a .ltd.uk or .plc.uk domain in error (i.e. outwith these rules), please log a ticket to our helpdesk and a refund will be processed to your account.
