Should purchase GoDaddy org

I want to buy a *** .uk domain in GoDaddy with my Indian address. Is that possible?

You need a local UK address to register for a domain. There are certain domain registrars that offer "escrow services".

I found the following:

What are the registration requirements for .UK domains?

. UK:

All second-level .UK domains registered before June 10, 2014 (e.g. .CO.UK, .ORG.UK, etc.) have priority and the right to be assigned the same .UK domain name until June 10, 2019 to register. This applies as long as the original domain remains active. 2. Level domains registered after June 10, 2014 do not have priority over the same .UK domain. Hence, the .UK domain name is open to the general public. If someone else has the rights to register the .UK domain to be registered, you will not be able to register that particular .UK domain until after June 10, 2019. If the requested .UK domain is not registered as another United Kingdom extension, it will be open to the general public. Here you can check whether someone has the rights to register your new .UK domain. A local UK address is required. If you do not meet this requirement, you can register the domain at the local address of the registrar for an additional fee (escrow service).


  • There are no requirements.

. ME.UK:

The registrant must be a UK natural person.


The registrant must be a UK Internet Service Provider and be listed as the Local Internet Registry. The registered domain name must be identical to the name of the applicant or a similar variant.

It is very important that you do not provide a fake address as it will steal your domain registration as soon as they find out. This is because ICANN requires that all information from the contact number to the address is real. When you use an escrow service, the registrar uses the local contacts in a particular country to legally purchase the domain name for you using their own business / home address or any other address required to complete the registration.
