The registry for .uk domain names (co.uk, .org.uk, me.uk, gov.uk and ac.uk) is lifting the current ‘2-year minimum’ registration/renewal term requirement for all .uk domain names and offering more flexible registration options. Until now, you had to register or renew these domains for a minimum of two years and the only term options were 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10 years. Effective May 1, 2012 you can register and/or renew .uk domain names for any term, up to 10 years (i.e., 1, 2, 3…10), just as you can for .COM domains.
If you have any questions about these changes or would like to register a .uk domain name, please contact your Safenames Account Manager or contact Safenames Customer Support at +44 1908 200022 (firstname.lastname@example.org), or the Safenames US office at +1.703.574.5313 (email@example.com).
