What is a .sch.uk domain?

.sch.uk is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United Kingdom. It was first registered in July 1985, seven months after the original generic top-level domains such as .com and the first country code after . sch.uk.

Why register a .sch.uk domain?

Wondering why you should get a .sch.uk domain? There are plenty of reasons:

  •  The .sch.uk extension is a shorter, sharper and snappier alternative to a .co.uk. It shows your visitors that you are located in the UK and, as it’s shorter, it puts the emphasis on your brand or company name – exactly where it should be. It also brings us in line with other large country-code registries such as .fr for France and .de for Germany, joining the rest of the world.
  • With shorter extensions becoming more popular, the .sch.uk domain provides a means to shorten your existing web address, creating a far simpler way for visitors to access your website. It gets straight to the point and clearly shows you are based in the UK. And it’s familiar – 98% of people are aware of domain names ending in .sch.uk.
  • The .sch.uk extension offers businesses and individuals in the United Kingdom the choice, relevance and availability that is needed to gain a competitive advantage today. This shorter, more memorable domain name will help define owners as part of the UK online community.
  • .sch.uk registration is perfect for anyone based in the UK who wants to expand their current domain portfolio and attract more customers. With shorter, more memorable names and the ability to show in an instant your site is based in the United Kingdom, this extension keeps web users and businesses ahead of the curve.
  • But rest assured, your other domains will continue to function as normal, and the .sch.uk simply gives you another option for you to choose in the UK namespace.
  1. Signify a .sch.uk presence
  2. Protect your brand and business identity
  3. A new shorter and memorable domain extension
  4. 81% of British users prefer to use a .sch.uk website over a .com when shopping online

 With over 10 million .sch.uk domains registered today and 2 million being added every year, it is safe to say that the United Kingdom loves .sch.uk.
