Parish Councils
Choosing a new  .GOV.UK domain name

Before proceeding ensure your organisation is eligible here to own a gov.uk domain name.

Parish Councils usually register the domain name [PARISH-name]"-pc.gov.uk"
For example:  "Chigwell-pc.gov.uk"

NOT allowed is the form [PARISH-name]".gov.uk"
For example:  "chineham.gov.uk"
(yes, there are parishes using only their name, but these were registered prior to changes brought in at the end of 2017).

The shorter the name the better, this will make it easier to convey the name to others.

 

You can find many more examples of names at:
   gov.uk/government/uploads/.../List_of_gov_uk_domain_names

When a name is selected check it is available here.
