UK domain names to change

The organisation responsible for the trusted ‘.co.uk’ domain extension in the United Kingdom, Nominet, is close to opening up a new frontier in UK name spaces, with the option of having a shorter ‘.uk’ domain extension rather than the traditional ‘.co.uk’. This means that the majority of businesses that have a website under ‘co.uk’ will be able to shorten the name of their site, and therefore have a more snappier and modern domain...

This is especially true if you already have an established offline business, and are finally making the leap into the online world.
