Register .UK Domain Before It’s Too Late

.UK Domain Registration Will Soon Open Up to General Public
When the .UK domains were first introduced in 2014, Nominet had restricted their registration for a 5 year period to allow the owners of a .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .plc.uk, or .ltd.uk domain to have priority right over the .UK equivalent. *
That priority right is now set to expire in just 18 days leaving British businesses vulnerable to losing their brand names to cyber-squatters and competitors who may be able to cause irreparable damage by stealing the .UK domain and redirecting traffic to another website.
The .UK domain sales open up to general public at 5AM on Tuesday, 25 June 2019. According to Nominet, except for the 10 million domains who had their .UK domain secured in 2014, 3.2 million have yet to register the .UK variant.
Rocket Domains encourages British brands and businesses to register .UK domain variant well before the deadline to avoid disappointment.
The right to register, which expires on 25th June 2019, is available to those owners of .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .net.uk, .plc.uk or .ltd.uk domains that were registered prior to midnight on 28 October 2013.
