We reported on the new dot uk domains coming in the Summer of 2014.
Well, the new domains are now here and ready for registration.
Nominet explained the domain was launched to give UK sites a shorter, snapper domain, to rival dot com. Cynics will think otherwise, but in my opinion, it should have been done a long time ago, and it will now only cause cause confusion amongst the general public.
Stephen Fry was one of the first to register his domain.
From today, new, short .uk web domains are available alongside .co.uk for the first time ever, with British icon and tech enthusiast Stephen Fry the first person to make the switch.
If you’re confused about these new domains, Nominet have a web site which explains in considerable detail about your rights to existing domains, and when those rights started and will end.
If you’re uncertain, give us a call and we’ll help you through the maze of possibilities and rights.
