.UK domains will soon be available to the public

  • Post author:

Five years ago, Nominet (the organisation who manages UK domain names) added .UK to their list of top-level-domains. But, they reserved them for owners of .co.uk and .org.uk domains. This meant there wasn’t any urgency to register a .uk domain if you didn’t actually want it as no-one else could have it if you owned the .co.uk version.

But, this stops being the case on 10th June 2019. So, if you own a .co.uk or .org.uk domain and want to make sure no-one gets the .uk equivalent, you would be well advised to register it before 10th June.

With that in mind, if there’s a .uk domain you’d like to register but can’t because you don’t have the .co.uk equivalent, from 10th June you’ll be able to.

You can purchase these domains from us at £12+vat per year. Just use the search box at the bottom of our website to see what’s available.
