    The domain(s) with the Right(s) are already on the same Registrar tag you are making the application for the .uk 2LD from?

    You're right mate. Well it's worth testing to make sure Nominet's systems are rock solid eh. :)

    Thanks for giving it a try; so I expect if I tried this through a useless seller like Ukreg/fasthosts they would happily take my money, then prevent registering, only for me to chase them for years to get a refund!

    It has to be the same Nom acc id as the .co.uk is on.

    Anyone know a registrar that is processing these instantly? I tried to register a .uk with names.co.uk but they said they are processing them slowly on purpose to avoid mistakes.

    Thanks

    Tried to claim a .uk for one of my .co.uk's at Godaddy but got the following:

    The domain is held at Godaddy but their system won't let me reg it with them at the moment.

    Anyone had any luck claiming their .uk at their .co.uk registrar?

    I've tried with 1&1 a few of hours ago, it accepted my payment, but in my control panel its still waiting approval.

    My .uk domain has now been successfully registered and I have forwarded it to my main .co.uk website.

    When I click on the link for eligible .uk domains in my account, it takes forever for the page to load. It then produces a list of my eligible domains alphabetically, but only between A-D or A-E, not the full list.

    This message is displayed...

    "The following domains are eligible for .UK Prior Rights Registration

    An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator.
    If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

    Have spoken to DM a couple of times, they are on the case.

    There are one or two .uk's that i'd like to grab on the sly, but I won't hold my breath on acquiring any rights over the names even if I do manage to get them!...
