The .uk TLD is the country-code top-level domain for the United Kingdom. You are not allowed to register a domain name directly under the .uk domain name (such as Domainmonster.uk); instead, you must register under one of the .uk second-level domains, such as .co.uk. Nominet UK is the registry database for all the .uk domains which are available for anyone to register, including .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk and .net.uk.
There are also some .uk second-level domains, the registration of which is not open to the general public. For example, only UK government bodies may register .gov.uk addresses, and only UK academic organisations may register .ac.uk domains.
Domainmonster.com is a member of Nominet UK. This means that we are able to take part in discussions and decision-making around how Nominet UK administrates the .uk TLD. For more information about the .uk registry, see Nominet UK's website.
