    Type in the new ‘’ domain to find out who has the right-of-registration.

    You must provide a .uk domain to look up.
    Dates and definitions
    What we mean when we say...
    New .uk domain launch
    •Cut off date is 23:59hrs on 28 October 2013
    •Launch date is 08:00hrs on 10 June 2014
    •The reservation period for existing customers who already have a,,,, or runs up until 07:59hrs on 10 June 2019
    •We are using the website name ‘example’ (eg: or throughout the website to demonstrate which domain names we are referring to and to hopefully make it clearer for you to understand. For your information the same reservation rights apply to these domains as to any other domains.
    Right to reserve
    •New registrations of domains made before 08:00hrs on 10 June 2014 (provided that no other equivalent,,, or exists) will get the rights to the new .uk domain.
    •After launch on 10 June 2014 any new registrations within the .uk family (e.g. in, etc) no longer get automatic rights to register the new .uk domain. So these new .uk domains become available for anyone to register.
    •Anyone wanting a new .uk domain, where there are no existing domains with rights, will simply be able to register the new .uk domain.
    •You can check our Rights lookup tool for information on who has first rights.
    •You can then register your new .uk domain as usual with your chosen registrar when it launches on 10 June 2014.
    Other information
    •Domains must be continuously registered to retain the rights to the new .uk.
    •If you have the right to register a new .uk domain then that right will move with the domain, if you transfer your domain to another person, as long as it remains continuously registered.
    •All rights to new .uk domains will cease if an existing domain is not renewed.
