Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Plans to offer UK-based firms shorter internet domain names backed by added security features have been proposed.
The scheme would give businesses the chance to register www.name.uk as their web address. It would run alongside the current www.name.co.uk service.
Applicants would have to prove they had a UK presence and pay a higher fee.

What ! sanity at Nominet ! Now just make it that only UK registered businesses or residents or citizens can register a dotuk ..
Ok so they did propose that ..but scrap the dotcodotuk ..which every spammer worldwide can and has got ..and give the dotcodotuk registrants who fulfill one of those three criteria automatically the dotuk version of what they have registered now..
For instance would Google own google.co.uk and Apple own apple.co.uk if foreign corporations were prevented from registering a .co.uk?

I'll still buy as many as I can though, this is business after all.
Remember the days when a dotcom was £65 a year?
prove they had a UK presence
