Corresponding .uk domain names

Almost 5 years ago Nominet released the ability to have `yourname.uk` and if you had a .co.uk you had first choice of the domain name for example, I have `fife.co.uk` and I also recently registered `fife.uk`.

When .UK was launched on 10 June 2014 the rights were reserved for many existing customers owning a .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .net.uk, .plc.uk or .ltd.uk to their equivalent .uk domain.

The original owners` right for their corresponding .uk domain expires shortly. The purpose of this email is to inform you of this.

If you already own a domain ending in .UK (e.g. .co.uk) then for a limited period, you may have the rights to your equivalent shorter .uk domain.

If you wish to register a `.uk` domain then let me know.

Nowadays there are plenty of choices for a domain so I don`t think it is imperative you also request the .UK domain.

Don`t miss out
We do not want you to miss out, so for a limited time, we are giving you your matching .uk domain(s) FREE for THE FIRST YEAR*

The .uk domain is the shorter UK focussed domain for businesses and individuals and delivers the same trust, reliability and credibility as .co.uk.

.uk: Confident. Entrepreneurial. Distinctive.

Terms and Conditions
You have the rights of registration to your .uk equivalent domain until 25 June 2019, after 1 July 2019 your .uk equivalent domain will be released and anyone can register it. Over the next 3 months (Jan to March) we are offering your .uk domain free of charge for one year.

This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, sale, discount or promotion. After the initial purchase term, discounted products will renew at the then-current list price. Offer does not apply to Premium domains or renewals.

After this period anybody will be able to register domains that have not been reserved.
