    What is the current policy for .net.uk

    And why does nominet have nomi.net.uk but not nominet.net.uk

    See number 11. Specific rules for the .net.uk SLD on:

    http://www.nic.uk/registrants/legal/rules/

    However they did however have a consultation on it last year:

    http://www.nic.uk/policy/consultations/netuk/

    And a work group:

    http://www.nic.uk/policy/wg/net/

    However this led to a statement on the 14 March 2007 (at the last PAB meeting):

    http://www.nic.uk/digitalAssets/17115_070215_.net.uk_statement.pdf

    Can Nominet reserve any name it likes to prevent it from being phished? I think it should do securenominet.org.uk to.

    Same as for a long time as there was no consensus on how to change it.

    Nomi.net.uk was registered before Aug 1996 so it's pre all these rules I think. As for why it doesn't have Nominet.net.uk probably because it doesn't use it and the rules would make it very difficult for anyone else to register it anyway.

    Indeed.. The general view was that most people wanted it to be a TLD for ISPs to make sure there is namespace available for them.. and they thought there should be restrictions. The problem arose with everyone wanting restrictions that "just allowed" them within the category, but not every joe bloggs startup :)
