As of the 10th June 2014 the new shorter .uk domain names are available to register. Wait! before you join in with another top level domain land rush – .uk domains are reserved for 5 years for current owners of the equivalent .co.uk domain.
So if you have a .co.uk domain it would be prudent to register your .uk domain (yes we can do that for you here at Flair4 Design)…doesn’t seem there’s any desperate rush as you have until 2019 with the 5 year buffer before they become available on general release.
