Hi there,

I want to know what is the difference between .com and .co.uk domains?
And if I buy a domain .co.uk then which benefits I can get from it for SEO, keyword rankings or business?

please share honest thought.

Hi there

A .com domain can target anywhere in the world and is the most common used domain name.

A .co.uk domain is specific to the UK and will target the UK only, although the website behind the .co.uk domain can be seen by anyone in the world.

If your intention is to target the UK only, then purchase a .co.uk domain and also purchase hosting from a UK supplier.

The SEO benefits from this alone isn't massive, but it will certainly help.

.co.uk domains are good if you are planning to target UK market only .com is for worldwide market.

If your are targeting visitors from all over the globe, then you should go for .com, but if you are targeting UK local visitors then you can go for the .co.uk.

As for SEO, local search engines can not ignore websites/domains with country or city TLD.

Also, if you are targeting internationally and your looking to brand your business, it would be wise to register the .com extension with all other popular extensions and important local ones.

I think .com for USA and all countries, .co.uk for UK it is very good for UK.

If you get .co.uk, you also get preferential access to .uk (without the .co)
