Landrush phase for Nominet .uk short domains

The Landrush phase for the 2,640 remaining .uk short domains will begin on 23rd May.

List of domains that will be released by Nominet can be found here

To ensure all interested parties can take part, a Landrush application window opens at midday (12.00 BST) on 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.

Any domain name for which there is only one qualifying application (see section 6 of the Sunrise Process and Registration Rules) will be allocated on 23rd June.

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 20th July 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.

Please note that the domains will remain on the ‘whois’ as reserved and will not show as ‘available’, hence we will be only offering registration applications via our Domain Name Management service. Contact me on obp@names.co.uk for more details.
