Your right to register .uk expires soon!

9th May 2019

If you are the owner of a UK domain, the equivalent .uk domain name might be reserved for you. However, this right to register will expire on 25 June 2019.

What does this mean?

From 1 July 2019, anyone will be able to register <your-name>.uk. They could do this to compete against you, or prevent you using the domain name, or simply because it is a great domain name and they want to use it. But once they register the domain name, you will no longer be able to do so.

How do I know if I am affected?

Nominet, the .uk registrar, has a helpful website with more information:

Simply enter your existing domain name(s) into the orange box half way down the page to find out if you have the right to <your-name>.uk.

What can I do?

To register <your-name>.uk, simply contact us before Wednesday 20 June 2019 indicating the domain name(s) you wish to register.

How much will it cost?

We only charge £12 + VAT per year for .uk domain names. And, if you’re a hosting customer or use our powerful Content Management System, you get 50% off! Assuming you are an existing customer, we will add this to your annual invoice, so there is nothing to pay right now.
