    In preparation for the end of the .uk right of registration period on the 25th June 2019, a list of.uk rights that have not yet been registered is now available for registrars to view.

    This list will be updated on a weekly basis so that registrars have a view of the unregistered .uk domains with rights ahead of the release of remaining rights which will begin on the 1st July 2019. Between now and the 25th June 2019 domains may lose their right or be registered and therefore they will no longer be listed.

    To access the list, log onto ‘Online Services’, click on ‘Right of Registration’ at the bottom of the page and follow the instructions.

    After a quick glance through the first 700k domains, I surprised that co.uk's are registered in most cases. I wonder if hype or common sense will prevail in July.

    Not sure but, if hype prevails, don't we make more money? ;)

    This part is confusing, how can they lose their right before they are dropped on July 1st?

    It is shocking to me that, collectively, a vast fortune is squandered daily on lottery products, for a nano chance of riches. There is more rhyme and reason in domain registrations but still considerable wastage.

    Financially, Registries and big Registrars are the winners. A shrewd minority of domain resellers are successful, from research and wise choices. An army of losers caught up in hype, generously support Nominet and the like.

    I disagree. It depends what sort of strategy you take. I take an offensive (read: proactive) approach and run a successful business, the majority of which is outbound sales. I work as part of a freelance team, though I have associates that run much the same business model and have 10/20 staff that increase the revenue made on outbound cold call domain sales and turnover half a million a year.

    I'm sure there will be a large uptake towards the end of the period as people begrudgingly register what they think they 'have to'. I expect to see a lot of those drop though a year later. I'd be careful to new investors about investing too much in this - could make you go broke very quickly.

    Are you planning on making a special droplist of these for UKDroplists?

    You mean just a list of what's dropping? They won't have any stats to look up as they aren't registered. So it would be just a copy of what you linked to...

    I'll see closer to the date when some have been removed. It'll cost a lot to run the high volume of data through and, since google stopped giving useful information, the results always seem a bit low.

    Yeah as Tim said, just a way to filter out the more desirable names

    What kind of expense are we talking? I'd happily chip in for that kind of data.

    I don't know offhand but it's different paying for 300,000 dropping domains than several million :p

    I'll come up with something. I can filter that down first before deciding what is worth looking up. It means a few will slip through but shouldn't be too many.

    Ask everyone a question.
    I want to know if foreign users of .uk and .co.uk domain names can also register. And co.uk is not limited to companies can register? :)

    —— I come from China. Not the avatar icon shows the United States. I don't know what happened to my avatar. It shows that it is the United States.

    Yes co.uk, and now .uk, domains can be registered by people outside of UK.

    Yes basically the current info minus majestic, moz, etc - anything that requires a domain to actually be registered or have been registered.
