This is a placeholder thread for practical issues that I believe we need to keep an eye on following the .uk launch. Please feel free to add to the list. The idea is that we can come back to this thread after launch, and fill in the "gaps" as more becomes clear. Note the 'practical' in the paragraph above - this thread will become totally useless if we co-mingle real-life issues and issues of policy, so anything relating to the latter should be given their own thread(s). 1) For .co.uk/.uk paired sales - Does the registrar that the buyer has in mind support .uk? (some smaller registrars may not do so day 1) - Is the process the buyer has to follow (outside of the Nominet bit) somehow different for .co.uk and .uk? If so, what do we as sellers need to provide in terms of guidance - What if there is a big price difference between .co.uk and .uk at their chosen registrar? Should we be recommending alternatives? Will that put some buyers off, or at least worry them? - What if the domain is sold to a non-UK entity? Suddenly they may have to go down the "address for service" route before you can even transfer the domain to them. Chilling effect? How to explain this? Is there a list of "address for service" providers? 2) For .uk transfers - What happens if you try to transfer a .uk and the recipient has a non-UK address?
