Coming Summer 2014: .UK’s Biggest Domain change

 

Summer 2014  will see one of the biggest domain modifications in the UK ever. The roll-out of .uk domains will allow companies who currently use ‘.co.uk’ or ‘org.uk’ domains to also register for  ‘.uk’  e.g.  datadial.co.uk will be able to register datadial.uk.

Nominet will offer the current holders of the .co.uk or org.uk up to 5 years to register the domain before it is released to the general public.

In the event that one company holds .co.uk and another holds .org.uk, the shorter domain will be offered to the holders of the .co.uk domain.

If a domain is not currently registered to .co.uk or .org.uk, the domain will be available on a first-come, first-served basis on launch day.

So in essence, if you have a .co.uk or a .org.uk, you will be able to simplify it to .uk next year.
