    Nominet To Release .UK, A Lifeline For Penalty Hit co.uks?

    Nominet (the .UK domain name registry in the United Kingdom) have announced they are going to open up second level registrations by releasing .UK

    Previously you could only register third level co.uk, org.uk, me.uk etc

    Nominet to introduce shorter .uk domain name registrations | Nominet

    The .UK will be offered to the co.uk holder.

    Interesting news as it is, but from an SEO point of view it's also interesting in regard to google penalties..

    Sometimes the easiest option with a penalty slapped domain is to start again on a new one, the problem with that is people don't want to just give up their brandname.co.uk

    But now for UK businesses they can grasp their brandname.uk lifeline and have a fresh start.

    That is great. I also saw on Name Cheap that .io domains are now available. Though at $60 a year it is quite expensive.
