Is it possible to search with google.co.uk with https?

2 Answers 2


As typing "https://www.google.co.uk" just redirects to plain old "http://www.google.co.uk" I'd say you can't at the moment.

If you go to "https://www.google.com" you should notice that it says "beta" on the logo:

Therefore, I wouldn't expect it to be rolled out globally just yet. Once it leaves beta I'd hope that the country specific secure sites would become available.


https://www.google.com/ should give you the same search results, with https.

  • uk specific results?

    I was under the impression that co.uk gave higher rank to local sites otherwise wouldn't a search for any general service (e.g. car insurance) always just give american results?
