hypnosec (2231454) writes "Starting today businesses and individuals in the UK will be able to register a new national web address ‘.uk’ and drop their existing ‘.co.uk’ or ‘.com’ suffix in favour of a shorter and snappier domain name. The entire process along with the transition is being overseen by private yet not-for-profit organisation Nominet, which has already started notifying existing customers with a ‘.co.uk’ domain of their chance to adopt a ‘.uk’ domain. Nominet will reserve all ‘.uk’ domain names, which already have a ‘.co.uk’ counterparts, for the next five years offering registrants the chance to adopt the new domain and to keep cyber squatters at bay."
