Nominet, the authority that manages UK domains, has finally released the plain .UK domain extension for open registration alongside the popular .CO.UK TLD.

What are the main benefits of .UK domains?

The .UK domain extension is a new exciting 'webatory' for present and future website owners whose personal or business online presence is somehow related to the UK. It is an excellent choice for those of you who have always dreamt of having a short and memorable domain with the much-easier-to-spell-and-type .UK ending.

Do .CO.UK domain owners have rights over the new .UK equivalent?

According to Nominet, every .CO.UK domain holder will be the first to be offered the shorter .UK equivalent of their current address. They will have 5 years to decide whether they want to use it in addition to, or instead of the domain they already have. Nominet will be contacting these customers personally to ensure that they are aware of this right.

How do I register a .UK domain for my site?

You can register a .UK domain for 1-10 years here or from your Control Panel. The registration procedure is the same as that for .CO.UK, .ME.UK and .ORG.UK.
If you are having troubles registering your .UK domain, please open a support ticket from the Help Center for more information.
