Ten Million UK-Domains

Koeln, (PresseBox) - The uk-domain is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United Kingdom.It is the fourth most popular top-level domain worldwide (after .com, .de and .net).

The '.co.uk' second level domain within '.uk' is more widely used than for most other countries. This results of specific rules set by the registry, prohibiting direct use of the ccTLD .uk.

The uk-domains passed another significant milestone when it reached recently ten million registrations.

Secura GmbH is a NOMINET-Member and ICANN accredited Registrar.The customer can order at us uk-domains, which registrants are getting by our domain experts very quick and reliable.

Everybody can register org.uk and co.uk-domains.We recommend to order the desired name at co.uk as well at org.uk, because a nasty situation could arise, if a competitor is marketing its services and products with your name at another uk-domain.

The me.uk-domains are thought for your personal use. If you have a Ltd or a PLC, you can order a ltd.uk or plc.uk-domain. The ac.uk-domains are for academic institutions.

The registry of uk-domains, Nominet, will introduce multi-year registration available from 1 May 2012. Till this date registrars can register uk-domains-like co.uk and org.uk- only for the fixed period of two years.

Nominet declares: "The new multi-year registration periods will offer greater choice for registrants, who can secure their domain for a longer term without worrying about regular renewals."

Nominet reports, that before taking the decision, it has consulted with its members and the wider domain name community to ensure their views on whether and how to bring in flexible registrations were taken into account.
