What is a .UK Domain name?

This article applies to 123-reg Domain Names

.uk is the Country Code Top Level Domain extension for the United Kingdom. Until now, .uk has only been used as part of a second level domain extension such as .co.uk, .org.uk or similar. 

On the 10th June 2014, Nominet, the .uk domain name registry is releasing .uk for use as a top level domain extension - so now, instead of mydomain.co.uk, you can now have mydomain.uk.

There are some restrictions with regards to who can register which .UK domain name. You can find out more about these restrictions here.
