The .com domain stands for 'commercial', and is an emblem of online prestige for many businesses, as it isn't linked to a specific country or area. It's the most recognisable presence you can have on the internet
The .co.uk domain is the domain to imply the website operates within the United Kingdom, but its registrants can be from anywhere. 70% of users see it as a 'trustworthy' domain extension when browsing online, and 94% of small businesses opt for it.
The .uk domain name is fairly new on the scene, primarily being used for British businesses. Shorter than its .co.uk alternative, it has seen tremendous uptake as people either claim another piece of their online identity, or begin building a new one using a cutting edge domain extension.
The .co domain currently refers to Colombian domain names, but is being used globally due to its brief and memorable nature. Many opt to use it if the .com alternative is not available, as .co is still a steadily growing segment.
