Nominet have made a real effort to incorporate the feedback into the final .uk solution. Nominet finally got the message and have put the UK namespace firmly ahead of; 'this is all do to with Nominet’s needs and desires'. The final .uk solution Nominet has produced is; good for UK business good for UK domain holders good for .org.uk good for new UK domain entrants It is not perfect solution but no new system ever would be perfect. Nominet even had some studies done to try to justify why .uk was needed as many had always expressed the view that such work should be undertaken to make the case why have .uk at all. Hope that the few problems created by the solution can be minimized further by identifying the issues and acting on them as soon as possible. On-going forward I hope Nominet will consider the following; Create a lookup tool on its website (and agreatplacetobe.co.uk) for any UK domain name that will advise what the situation is regarding the equivalent .uk. Adjusting for pre/post 28th October 2013 so will work with old and new registrations. Scrap the Nominet £12 transfer fee now, it will help with renewal rate improvements and the free flow of .co.uk domains that are entitled to the .uk. Please don’t wait and introduce the scrapping to benefit large registrars, do it now to improve the UK namespace and bring it in to line with .com and .net etc. Set a date for the postponed Nominet 2013 registrar meeting early in 2014, so to get feedback on .uk and other issues, so Nominet can take account of those views and observations which should help it fine tune implementation. Consider how to reduce leakage of different ownership of .co.uk and .uk by changing renewal notices etc. to warn of the commercial and security dangers of not owning both. Update the reserved list as soon as possible and if any domains that were on the proposal that are no longer going to be needed, please advise the owners of the .co.uk so they are put through unnecessary anxiety. Nominet use Nominet.org.uk not Nominet.uk to support .org.uk. Helpful for Nominet to issue guidelines to registrars about selling and offering .uk which include a clear statement about the 5 years to decide, so as not to unduly pressure people to pay when they don't have to. (idea from Andrew Bennett) Hope that Nominet will realize that 'domainers' can help shape the UK namespace, for the benefit of all and that a new constructive relationship is established going forward.
