.UK Domain Names - The Final Phase

Posted by Calico UK - 15:20 on 12 July 2019

A few years ago Nominet launched the simpler, shorter .uk -ending domain names. If someone already had a .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk domain name they could reserve the equivalent .uk name too. This was to give them priority over the name to protect their brand if they wanted to. On the other hand, if no-one had already registered the .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk name then the .uk version would be available to anyone.

This priority "Right Of Registration" phase is now over and from now on you can register a .uk domain name whether or not you or anyone else already has one of the other endings - if the .uk version is available you can now register it.

This also means that if you were unlucky when trying to register a .co.uk or .com domain name then you could now try for the snappy .uk equivalent.

If you are interested in registering a domain with a .uk ending, please try our Domain Search tool at the top of this page. You can place an order through our website, or you can call our friendly help desk on 01381 600580 to discuss hosting options.
