The launch of the .uk domain name is the biggest change to the .uk domain since it began, opening up choice and huge opportunities for UK website owners.
The .uk extension is the shortest extension possible. It puts the focus on the company’s brand name to create a great first impression. This domain also provides a new space for online businesses to develop their identity and strengthen their position on the UK market. The official launch date for .uk domains is 10 June 2014 but, if you have existing .co.uk domain, you can contact us to pre-order your .uk through Blinkered before this date.
Domains registered before 23.59hrs on 28 October will have rights to the equivalent new .uk domain, provided there was no other corresponding .co.uk,.org.uk, .me.uk, .ltd.uk, .plc.uk or .net.uk registered.
Why is this important for you?
Protect your company name
Registering a .uk version of your domain name puts you in control of your company name, ensuring that competitors don’t take advantage of it.
If you already have a .co.uk, .me.uk, .org.uk or even .com, .net or .org domain name, a .uk will provide you with flexibility in terms of extra websites, URL shorteners, or redirects.
Target UK audience
Respected globally, domains with the .uk extension offer a fantastic range of benefits for website owners targeting a UK Audience.
They are the preferred choice of web users from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, helping users to create a great first impression and putting a strong focus on your brand name.
Snappy and concise, new .uk focuses the attention firmly on your website name – exactly where it should be. It’s faster for smartphone and tablet users to type. This makes it highly memorable for users, increasing the chances for your website to receive more traffic.
