Is it possible to limit the search to specific site using DDG? Much like
site:*.co.uk on Google.
Yes you can - it is the same syntax.
- You can add
site:domainto your search to restrict the results to a particular domain, e.g.
- Click the site icons next to the results (on the left) to do a site search for the domain related to that result. You can also do the same by clicking the 'More results' link to the right of the URL line for a given result.

You can use the "bangs" functionality and directly search most major sites.
Or you can type in a command like
!amazon bags, which will take you to Amazon.com and auto-search it for 'bags'.
We call these commands
!bangs, and this syntax works for 100s of sites:
- Most big sites work, e.g.
!youtube(see full list below)
- Most generic keywords work too, e.g.
- There are also shorter versions, e.g.
'\'will take you to the first result.
!safeoffwill run a search with safe search off.
See this DuckDuckGo article for more information on how the "bangs" functionality works.

some search words site:ne # this works some search words site:.ne # this does not
