    Doesn't give the details, such as oldest registrant or .co.uk user getting first dibbs. Kind of makes the whole second consultation seem a bit moot.

    Oh yes it does!!!!


    "in the small proportion of instances where there could be competition – e.g. where one person holds example.co.uk and another holds example.org.uk – the shorter domain will be offered to the .co.uk registrant. "

    Before this thread gets HUGE, I'd just like to claim full credit for shooting down the oldest registrant first idea and cementing the idea that .co.uk users, that account for over 90% of registrants, should receive the shorter .uk should it have gone ahead! ;) ;) :) Thank you and goodnight. :cool:

    They were using an e.g. so I would expect that applies to all other .uk 3rd levels with .co.uk being preeminent.

    What would be the claim period? or does it automatically give every registrant five years to decide (from Feb 2014)?

    Is the sky falling?

    To me, this is not a bad result at all. We get a shorter, more aesthetically pleasing namespace. Existing .co.uk holder's rights are prioritised over everything else, and you only have to pay £3.50 more per year.

    I presume nobody knows this as of yet, but I wonder what this means for the domains that where going to be reserved for government departments. Will these .uk domains now go to the equivalent .co.uk domain owners or still be reserved for goverment?

    I'm presuming as they are saying the .co.uk owner should get the domains for all others, then the same would apply in these cases.
