Here’s what you need to know about the registration process:
If you have a unique .co.uk, .org.uk, or other similar domain, the equivalent .uk domain will be automatically reserved for you until June 10, 2019, as long as the domain remains registered.
If you want to register a 2nd level .uk domain, such as ‘example.uk’, then the contact info for that domain must be an exact match to the existing equivalent third level .uk domain, like ‘example.co.uk’ or ‘example.org.uk’. If the information is not the same the registration will fail.
If there is no equivalent domain with rights already existing within the .uk domain family, by registering the .co.uk you will automatically have the right to register the new .uk domain.
Note: if your third level .uk domain name resides at a registrar other than OpenSRS, Nominet will email the registrant to confirm the registration.
We think this new easier-to-use domain extension is a great addition to our current offerings and we’re pleased to be able to offer it to you! Please contact our Billing department for assistance with registering a new domain name, or if you have any questions regarding the registration process.
