Looking for a council website? We can help!

If you're looking for a council or government website, we can help! Here at Sonder we are thrilled to have been confirmed as official registrars of government websites. That means we are able to apply for and build websites with the .gov.uk domain name.

It's a great addition to our ever growing range of services that we offer, and makes us well placed to build town council websites, neighbourhood planning websites and sites for any group connected to a government body.

You may be wondering why these domains need special approval? Any website associated with a .gov.uk domain name needs to meet certain guidelines of content and security and has to be registered by an official registrar.

And the benefits? The .gov.uk domain adds authority to your website for both the users who browse the site and for Google as these domain types have SEO benefits for the website - so you're more likely to be found through searches. Making it extremely valuable if you're applicable to register a site with this domain type. 

With that said, you can not simply register for this type of domain. It should be noted that according to official government guidelines, registration/ownership of a .gov.uk website is limited to:

  • UK government (including devolved administrations’ departments and agencies)
  • Agencies
  • Executive and advisory non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs)

If you're a town council or government body looking for a website, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. Our team will be more than happy to assist with any queries you have!
