Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I've tried searching for an answer but don't seem to be able to locate anything so far.
Is there a specific reason? The only thing I could think of was people ending names in "s" and "f"...! :-)
However, a handful of ".uk only"domains that existed before Nominet was created have been allowed to continue. The example you cited is one of them. Others include the British Library, the National Health Service and the Ministry of Defence.
.uk isn't the only cctld in this boat
Yep, I knew that, my question is why?
For instance in India you can get both .co.in and .in, the .in being slightly more expensive and, this surprises me, some companies do not buy both extensions.
Saying that although I have several .cn sites I have never considered .com.cn
But back to my original question, there must be a "logical/sensible" reason for not releasing .uk .au .nz .etc but what is it?
