Nominet-ukNominet, a domain name registry that oversees .uk and .co.uk domains has made shorter .uk domains which will start on June 10, 2014. Existing .uk customers will be offered a shorter equivalent of their current address. They have five years to decide whether they will use it as an addition or replace their existing domains.

According to Nominet, by introducting .uk as a standard stand-alone domain, they are providing another option for people to build their online success stories on Nominet. Also, Nominet said that about 80% of people prefer .uk domains when searching or buying online.

 

Nominet has also updated their WHOIS tools so customers can find out about the right of registration for the new .uk domains.
