Anyone ever seen a .uk domain before?:
didn't know these existed
NEW JUST WWW.UK! (.CO 2 GO)!
That's scary stuff, do you think its the future of things to come? After all china dropped their tld .china to just .cn and their are many more that have also shortened their countries tlds and slds. The end maybe near! Help!
www.evie.uk Lol :wink:
there goes all that investment in co.uk
I don't think these names are generally available, I haven't even heard them mentioned in any other domain site or listed on any WHOIS checker.
Has anyone else found another example of it? (other than evie.uk ) nice try
It's because it's owned by a public body. See mod.uk
Funny how none of these urls work without the www. I never type in www.
I always thought nominet never set up a record but its the same for all of them.
There's a few knocking about. Registered I think before Nominet took over. ai.co.uk was suspended last year, but was taken out of circulation when it dropped.
The only possibility of the .co being dropped is if the Nominet membership vote for it which seems like turkeys voting for christmas...until you take a closer look at the weighted voting system Nominet use. Schlund and 123 have enormous weighted voting power over the the other members. If those two see a commercial advantage to their operations by dropping .co then it might just happen over our collective heads
bl.uk and british-library.uk were registered long before Nominet started and before the naming group decided to use the second-level co.uk. But were allowed to carry on using the domains.
(This is what I read somewhere ages ago.)
Separate names with a comma.
