The .UK zone files


The zone file is available to all and contains files for the .uk,,,,,, and zones, subject to standard licence terms.

We will also provide a list of all domains currently registered with Nominet. This will include domains that are suspended, or do not have nameservers attached and are therefore not included in zone files.
