can i make a domain name with .co.uk instead of .com? i have been trying to but it wont let me go any further than 89% finished

Answer
Hi M, Hart,
Thank you for your question. It seems that at this time SimpleSite domain options include .com, .net, .org, .info, and .biz. I suggest emailing SimpleSite’s customer service at customerservice@simplesite.com to let them know that you would like the .co.uk option and see what they can do about it. They try to respond to all email requests within 2 business days. Otherwise, you can always transfer a domain with .co.uk from another provider to your SimpleSite website, free of charge.
