    Anyone else receive an email from NoktaDomains offering leasing of .co.uk domains, and saying you have the option to reserve the corresponding .UK domain to make your online business even more successful? Do they know something I don't?

    Surely they can't be allowed to get away with that for something that may not happen..

    All the new tld.s and for uk a cctld on the horizon and given the way many see the net developing many like Nokta are going to need to be aggressively trying to claw in revenue before the bubble completely burst? The reason there up for lease no one wants to buy them at the price they want...

    Surprised there advertising doesn’t say “Lease a name become a millionaireeeee” although the small print would be start with ten million end up with one..

    You could pretty much guarantee you can get whatever UK name you want if your wiliing to pay the price would be another thing ?

    My name is Merve Engin from NoktaDomains.com. As a domain specialist, I am mainly responsible for domain leasing operation.

    You are receiving this email because you either purchased .co.uk domain(s) or were interested in .co.uk domain(s). I would like to share a promotion with you, which is only valid for .co.uk domains at the moment: you can annually lease a .co.uk domain with very competitive prices – starting from $25 of annual price.

    In addition, you now have the opportunity to reserve the .UK version of the same domain. It is now your time to guarantee your project to be more successful and sustainable.



    The thing that makes this email offer even more interesting is.....

    It offers a lease for a domain name, so you would not own the .uk , It is they who have the opportunity to reserve the .uk
    I'm sure this email has been put out without any thought .:evil:
