Originally .org.uk domain names were intended to help UK based charities or other not for profit organizations to identify themselves. However, over time this rule has been relaxed & now just about anyone can register a .org.uk domain.
Nowadays anyone can register a .org.uk domain name & they are issued to the first person/organization that registers them.
As long as the domain name that you register does not infringe someone else’s copyright or trademark then you can register one. If you are not sure we recommend that you seek the appropriate legal advice.
We will send you renewal reminders before your .org.uk domain expires. These are sent to the billing contact in our system. The domain renewal emails are sent 90 days, 60 days, 30 days, 10 days, 5 days before expiry & on the expiry date.
The email will include a link to the Pickaweb Billing Area where you can login to request your domain renewal.
At any time you can login & change your domain settings so that it will auto-renew on the expiry date. You can manage this via your Pickaweb Client Area. As long as the payment details on record are valid & kept up to date then the renewal will be applied.
If you let your .org.uk domain expire for any reason then you still get another 30 days to renew your domain. All you need to do is to login to your Pickaweb Client Area to do this. If there are any problems, just contact our friendly support team & we will check everything for you.
Nominet is the UK Registry & they issue & administer all .org.uk domains. Their website is https://www.nominet.uk/ Normally all contact regarding your domain name is via a Registrra such as Pickaweb because Nominet does not usually deal directly with the public, except to deal with things like domain name ownership disputes (see below).
