.uk Short Domains (and Reserved)

As many of you will already be aware (we’ve already applied for some of you) Nominet (the organisation that runs the .uk domain name space) is releasing a large list of previously reserved domain names – most of these are either single or double character domains. At the moment we’re in the open landrush phase – so anyone can apply for any of the remaining 2640 domain names.

How much does it cost?

Nominet charge a fee of £10 + VAT per domain name for applying for a domain name – if you’re the only one that applies then you’ll be allocated the domain name, if more than one registration is received by June 15th then it will go to auction. If you’re successful at either stage then KDA will charge our usual fee of £14.95 + VAT per domain name to register it for 2 years.

How do I apply?

If you’d like to apply then you’ll need to open up a support ticket with us, as we’re currently doing all the reserved domain applications manually – so we can make sure everything runs smoothly. Once we’ve submitted the request, we’ll send you a code, which you’ll need to enter at the URL we provide – this will allow you to pay the £10 + VAT fee to Nominet.
