If you’ve had a co.uk domain name for a few years you might have got email from us recently about a “reserved” .uk domain. What’s this all about?

A large number of people have been in touch recently to seek our advice, after receiving emails soliciting them to buy the .COM equivalent of their .IE domain name for 10 years.

In order for the Internet to function properly there has to be “trust”. Trust in “online” is something that has ebbed and flowed over the years, but over the past two decades more and more of our daily lives are linked closely to “digital”.
