Nominet names the date for shorter .uk addresses

Nominet is to start selling .uk domain names at the second level for the first time on June 10 this year.

The controversial Direct.uk service will enable people to register example.uk names, rather than example.co.uk names.

If you already own a .co.uk name, you’ll get five years to register the matching .uk before it is released into the pool of available names.

Nominet has created a new web site to market the sea-change in how .uk names are administered.

    How long before the rights protection of third level is complete?

    Also, do you have any idea if .uk will require nexus like .co.uk does or whether it’s an open TLD?
