Landrush Period of short UK-Domains

Uk-Domains: Short Domains suitable for acronyms
(PresseBox) ( Koeln, )
The Landrush Period for the 2,640 remaining .uk short domains will begin on 23 May 2011.

To ensure all interested parties can take part, a Landrush application window opens at midday (12.00 BST) 23 May 2011 and will close at midday (12.00 BST) 15 June 2011. During this period, these domain names will not be available on a first come first served basis.

Throughout the application window, registrants can apply for the short domains they are interested in via their registrars.

In addition to normal registration costs each application will cost £10+VAT, which is non-refundable.

Any domain name for which there is only one qualifying application will be allocated on 23 June 2011.

Domain names which receive more than one application will go to auction, and the domain name will be awarded to the applicant who places the highest bid. The auctions will take place from 20 July 2011 onwards; details will be sent to participants in advance. Any profits from the auctions will go to Nominet Trust.

The remaining .uk short domains will be made available on a first-come, first served basis from 27 June 2011.
