Important news: Your .uk Domain grace period is ending
We wanted to let you know that on June 25th 2019 the grace period for buying a .uk domain name expires.
Domains ending .uk were opened up for registration in 2014. At the time, all new .uk domain registrations were reserved for a grace period for those who owned the equivalent .co.uk domain.
This grace period ends on 25th June 2019, at which time all unregistered .uk domains will be publicly available.
Why you should purchase your .uk domain
Once the grace period ends, anyone will be able to purchase available .uk domain. This means if you own BUSINESSNAME.co.uk but do not own BUSINESSNAME.uk, from the 25th of June someone else could register BUSINESSNAME.uk.
Someone else would then have the potential to launch a .uk website which ranks above yours for your own brand name. It is therefore vital to move quickly if you have not yet purchased your .uk domain and would still like to.
