Take advantage of our free domain name search facility and check against our vast database of 10 million registered entities operating within the UK today. At National Business Register, we want to ensure that you find the name you need and at the same time avoid copying that of another. With 25,000 changes every month and there already being 2 million businesses, 2.3 million companies and 4.2 million UK domain names registered, its vital checks are done accurately.

All you need to do is type in the domain name you want, and our facility will conduct a domain search within seconds. Once you have established the domain name you want is available, apply online or download our application form to ensure we can work quickly to register it for you. We will carry out additional comprehensive and detailed searches on your behalf and inform you once this is complete. It is important you do this before commencing trading under this name or if, for example, you need to order company-branded stationary etc., to avoid any unnecessary problems arising.

Search Domain Name Availability, Get the Name You Want

It’s never been more important to have an online presence, no matter what industry you’re in, and National Business Register can assist in making this process simple and easy to achieve. Domain name availability may not have been something you have considered, but it’s extremely important to avoid ‘passing off’ and causing yourself and your company unnecessary issues.

Our domain search filters our large database to ensure whatever the domain name you want is original and not copying any other company. Depending on the name you want, and due to the many millions already registered, this can be a difficult hurdle at first. Our search facility will help you find the name you want quickly and show you what is already out there.

If you want to, you can conduct a domain name search and then protect it, without setting up a fully-fledged website. This way, the domain name will be registered to you so that others cannot use it. Of course, if you plan to register and use the domain name, at National Business Register we can help design this.

Register a Domain Name & Create a Website

As part of domain name registration, we can arrange a free website to be created for you. This way you can search, register and create your domain all with National Business Register, allowing you to get started much quicker. As well as design the website, we can assist in getting it hosted so that you’ll be able to reach as many people as possible across the world.
