    I hope you are all well! I would just like to introduce myself as Steven, and recent acquirer of the gas.uk domain name amongst others.

    I was introduced into this domainer network by the various domain sellers who intrigued me with their conversations, which subsequently compelled me to join this forum.

    Looking forward to meeting the community!
    Steven :)

    I actually run a clean energy technology company with specialist knowledge in the area of natural gas (Unitrove), so I acquired the aforementioned domain to point to this.

    I must admit, it was never my intention! I was actually watching out for the release of lua.uk (my surname), and then the opportunity arose to acquire other domain names in the process!

    Welcome Steven :) congratulations, big domain.

    Don't be ridiculous. They wouldn't have a leg to stand on, British Gas are old news. Secondly, do they even own the .CO.UK ? Thirdly, tough luck. They had 5 years to go through CSC and register it, they didn't, so that's that.

    'British Gas' is the brand not 'Gas'. There are many Gas companies in the UK and Steven happens to run one of them.

    Owing .co.uk of a domain does not give you the right to the .uk anymore, that's so few weeks ago.

    Thank you all kindly for the welcome and for your opinions! Seems somehow I've joined a relatively passionate debate - Looks like I'll have to tread carefully :)

    Hey thanks! I guess I already took the plunge coming here! I sense there are a few regulars here that people know very well of. In any case looking forward to learning and engaging in dialogue! :)

    Surely British Gas can't have a say over the word "GAS" unless you go and make a website that is a clone of British Gas. Gas is a generic word like other words .. if you brought sun bingo then its a totally different story ....;)

    5 years to register it ...
