Shorter .UK Domain Names To Launch In 2014

/ 11 years ago


It seems that 2014 will be the year of new domain names, with seemingly dozens of new iterations becoming available. The most recently announced behind the new .UK domain names that will be available to UK based sites. Obviously the current popular choice for UK based sites is and have .uk will keep things nice and snappy, perhaps it’s even a little bit cooler too.

Don’t worry about having to snap up your address in the new format either, the tens of millions of existing customers that have registered either a or a address will have five years to claim a shorter version of their current address.

With new last week that ICANN will be issuing .london domain names from next year we can only assume this is the start of even more unique domain name announcements for the UK and of course many other countries around the world.
