The rights validation period of the Unregistered Rights Sunrise phase for the release of .uk short domains closed on 31 March. Uncontested domains will be registered at midday (12.00 BST) on Wednesday 13 April.
Relevant registrars will be notified by PGP signed email and they will confirm to the applicants that their domain names have been registered.
Any contested domains will be involved in an auction phase to determine the successful registrant. Nominet will notify the relevant registrars and their auction partner NFPA will contact the applicants directly to advise them of the details of the auction process.
Following the close of the Unregistered Rights Sunrise phase, Nominet will announce details of the landrush phase, including a list of the domain names available, on 18 April….. watch this space 🙂
