We’ve moved to the new .uk domain!

Welcome to our new home at kamazoy.uk!

The new, shorter domain name, recently launched by Nominet, the UK’s domain registrar, puts the United Kingdom in line with other countries such as the Philippines and our European counterparts that have a name, a dot, and two letters.

It’s smart, it’s snappy, and it’s a great, bold statement to make for the United Kingdom.

How domain names are referred to: top-level, second-level, and so on

How domain names are referred to: top-level, second-level, and so on

We’ve long been relegated to third-level domains, in this country. If we wanted our home on the web to end in “uk” we had to choose something to go with it: either a co, or an org, or a ltd, or a few other pre-determined identifiers (see Nominet’s Rules page for the complete list).

Not any more. Nominet described the new extension as ‘the biggest modification of the .uk namespace since it began’.

There are certain rules relating to the registration of .uk domains – for example, if there’s a .co.uk that already exists, then that organisation has what Nominet call “right of registration” to the second-level domain (SLD) of the same name. These rules will be in place to allow organisations to pick up their .uk domains until 10th June 2019.

We’ve made the move, have you?
