If you are reading this then the chances are you already own a .uk domain name – one of 9 million .uk domain names that have been registered. The 9 millionth .uk domain was registered last week and the .uk domain continues to be one of the most important country specific domains.
The total number of domain names registered worldwide is set to pass the 200 million mark very shortly – if not already – with the last official statistics showing 2010 growth of around 6% on last year. The .uk domain was amongst the strongest domains too with over 1 million .uk domains registered in the past year alone.
Here at 123-reg we are very proud to play a big part in that. Nearly a fifth of all those .uk domain names have been registered via our systems and we hope many more to come. The importance of the .uk domain name as a recognised and respected internet presence is as high as ever and with our .co.uk domains at £2.99 if there are any you have yet to claim, now is as good a time as any to increase your portfolio.
