Thumbs up Nominet get it right

"For the majority of you the new .uk equivalent domain will be automatically reserved for you when it launches on 10 June 2014. So if you have a unique .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .net.uk, .plc.uk or .ltd.uk the shorter and snappier .uk will be reserved especially for you for free up until 10 June 2019 as long as your domain remains registered.

For some of you there will have been more than one domain that existed before the cut off date which shared the same website name as yours but had different domain name endings (i.e. www.example.co.uk and www.example.org.uk). Therefore you can check whether you have the rights to the new .uk by using our Rights lookup tool.

If you decide not to register the new .uk equivalent domain before 10 June 2019, it will then become available for someone else to register, but your existing domain will of course still be yours as long as it remains registered to you."

Re: Nominet get it right

the bottom line on this is that in all cases, the .co.uk gets the .uk even if it was registered after other uk variants i.e .org.uk etc

the only time an .org.uk has right to a .uk is if the .co.uk doesn't exist.

as Wot said, Nom got it right.

And the way I read it, the owner of the .co.uk does not have to register the .uk until 2019 if they wish.

Is that correct as I have had a registrar trying to get me to pre reg before the 10th June? Or just a money grab?

Re: Nominet get it right

"You are correct the .uk extension will be available for you until 2019 if you do not wish to purchase the .uk extension at the moment. As you stated the .uk extensions will only be available until 2019 as long as you retain the .co.uk extensions."

Confirmed.
