Nominet to offer shorter .uk domain name registrations

Wednesday 20 November 2013 | 20:33 CET | News
UK internet domain registry Nominet has approved plans to offer registrations directly before the 'dot' in .uk. From summer 2014, shorter, simpler 'example.uk' domain names will be available for the first time alongside 'example.co.uk', 'example.org.uk' and other. Unique 'example.uk' domain names will be available on a first-come, first served basis from launch. Over 10 million existing .uk customers will be offered the shorter equivalent of their current address, with a 5-year grace period to decide whether they want to use it. The wholesale price for the new domains will be GBP 3.50 per year for single year registrations and GBP 2.50 per year for multi-year registrations, the same cost as the current co.uk domain.
