Domain Name Frequently Asked Questions

What's this all about?

Nominet have released a new domain suffix - .uk which runs alongside the existing domains .co.uk , .org.uk etc

They've reserved the .uk versions of each domain for anyone who already has the .co.uk version

So for instance, if you have xyzabc.co.uk they should have reserved xyzabc.uk for you

You don't have to register the .uk version, they've just reserved it for you in case you do want it

If you do want the .UK version too, to register it you'll need to log in to our domains control panel for your domain , once logged in you'll see the option for checking UK rights, and the instructions for registering it

Either way your existing domain is completely unaffected top



How can I check if I have a reserved domain?

If you have an existing .co.uk or .org.uk and want to see if the .UK version has been reserved for you, you'll need to log in to our domains control panel for your domain , once logged in you'll see the option for checking UK rights, and the instructions for registering it top



What happens if I donít register the corresponding shorter .uk domain?

When your rights elapse on 25th June, the Ďreservedí domain will be available for registration by someone else.

Your existing domain is unaffected and will continue as usual. Remember to continue to renew your registration each year. top



What happens to my existing domain name?

Your existing domain is unaffected and will continue as usual, whether you or not you decide to register the .UK version top
