sublime//ip is an authorised domain name registrar in the United Kingdom and has over six years experience managing .uk domains. sublime//ip has been a member and tag holder of Nominet U.K. since 1999.

sublime//ip's wholly owned U.K. subsidiary, Sublime IP Ltd, was one of the first EURid Accredited Registrars able to provide services for the new .eu domains launched in 2005, being within the first 1% of registrars to be accredited.

We provide domain name registration and renewal services for clients in the United Kingdom and can bill in Pounds Sterling (GBP) as well as Euro and other European and global currencies on request. We can register and maintain names in .uk as well as nearly any country worldwide.

A range of hosting products are also available to allow U.K. clients to make the most of their domain names.

Domain Name Management

sublime//ip can register the various types of .uk domains, although of course .co.uk is the most common choice. As an unrestricted domain (no local U.K. presence required), .uk has been very successful and is one of the world's largest country code top level domains (ccTLDs), second only to Germany's .de.

We bill in Sterling for our British clients. Billing in Sterling is available for both .uk domains and for other domains we register worldwide in continental Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa and the Americas.

As .uk domains are available to anyone without a need for a local presence, we are also pleased to be able to register and renew .uk domains for clients located in other parts of the world. Given the size and openness of the .uk namespace, we regard .uk registration as an important defensive move for businesses and trademark holders worldwide even if they do not currently operate in the UK.


In addition to domain name registration services, sublime//ip can provide the following hosting services:

  • Server colocation (telehousing) and dedicated servers located in London (or from our sites in continental Europe or elsewhere in the world)
  • Email services (POP3, webmail, forwarding)
  • Managed DNS (Domain Name Service)
  • Virtual web hosting

Virtual hosting and smaller scale email services to our U.K. clients are currently provided via our European base in the Netherlands. This site is extremely well connected and also geographically close to the U.K.

We believe this offers the best of both worlds: London is only 8 milliseconds round trip time (RTT) away providing no discernable speed disadvantage and in fact faster throughput than some UK-based hosting providers. Meanwhile, end-user on the continent also have excellent connectivity. Our Netherlands site is right at the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMSIX), which peers directly with a number of other European IXs placing your content in easy reach to all of Europe.
