    Confusing person. Weren't you dead set against .uk at one time? Now it's the polar opposite? You've seen the light, so to speak.

    Too bad they didn't get the memo about 0845 phone numbers...

    I spotted this ad using a .uk on the telly. Air up is a German brand which explains the hyphenated domain as they love a dash in Deutschland.

    great to see it - but still fascinates me why graphic designers don’t capitalise the words in multi-word domains :D

    I'm a graphic designer and I usually camel case multi-word domains because it makes them instantly readable. I do the same with hashtags.

    I hardly ever venture out into the world, but every time I do now I see .UK names. That was in Magnet.

    Looks like they couldn't even be bothered to register the .co.uk.

    Probably cause they are a foreign brand and don't know that .co.uk is the most popular.

    I’m sure most of these will have been dropped long ago - but you get the idea on why it’s sometimes it’s a good idea :D
