Then you are eligible for a .coopUK.org domain!

I'm still not sure I am eligible.

CoopUK.org will review your eligibility at no charge to ensure your eligibility for a .coopUK.org domain prior to registration. Please contact us if you would like us to confirm your eligibility.

Can we get a .coopUK.org domain if we are just starting a co-op?

Co-ops in the process of formation may purchase a .coopUK.org domain.
CoopUK.org will periodically review your eligibility status under the Verification Policy.   Based on the registration agreement, CoopUK.org can revoke your domain registration if the registrant organisation is not eligible under the standard criteria once your organisation is in operation.

Are there any restrictions on the name I can register?

Cooperatives can register any domain name available on a first-come-first-served basis. However, all .
CoopUK.org domains are subject to the UDRP which deals with trademark and other use infringements.
