http://www.nominet.org.uk/registrants/legal/rules/ 4.4 We do not impose restrictions on your status as applicant for the registration of a Domain Name in the following SLDs ("Open SLDs"): 4.4.1 .co.uk; or 4.4.2 .org.uk. In the SLD Charter of the SLD Rules for the Open SLDs we do set out certain intentions regarding the class of applicant or use of registrations of the Domain Name which we assume you will comply with when applying for a registration of a Domain Name within an Open SLD. However, we do not forbid applications, and will take no action in respect of registrations that do not comply with the SLD Charters. We may request certain information from you regarding your legal identity when you make an application for or seek to amend the registration of a Domain Name in the Open SLDs. 7.2. SLD Charter Domain Names registered in the .co.uk SLD are intended to be used for commercial purposes, and the Third Level Domains are intended to reflect and be related to these purposes. 8.2. SLD Charter Registrants in .org.uk are intended to be not-for-profit or public service enterprises, and a Third Level Domain within this SLD is intended to be related to these enterprises and their activities. These may include, as non-exhaustive examples, charities, trades unions, political parties, community groups, educational councils, and professional institutions. ............................... me.uk The .me.uk SLD is intended to provide a personal namespace within the .uk Top Level Domain. Unless Rules 9.4 or 9.5 apply, registrants of .me.uk domain names must be, and remain at all times, natural persons (a “qualifying person”), and shall not be recorded on the register as being the agent, trustee, proxy or representative for any person or entity (whether having an individual legal personality or not) which is not a qualifying person. I'm a layman when it comes to all this and no doubt someone "in the know" will set the record straight here, but from what I read into this: 1. Nominet are happy for you to register bob.co.uk as a private individual but if a company called "bob" comes along you will most likely loose in a DRS 2. Nominet are happy for you to register bob.org.uk as a private individual but if a charity/other organisation called "bob" comes along you will most likely loose in a DRS 3. Nominet are happy for you to register loans.me.uk but if a "mr loans" comes along you will most likely loose in a DRS 4. Nominet are happy to transfer co.uk's and org.uk's between individuals and/or companies but me.uk's must always be between individuals. .
