Yes, subdomain is now looking the better option, as the managed DNS providers say they cannot resolve to directly a folder. The drawback is diminished contribution to root domain authority.
Assuming the subdomain solution, do you think the URL can be masked with the primary domain (i.e. domain.com instead of uk.domain.com) without cross-contaminating search indexing and rank?
