Nominet Releases .UK Short Domains Release Update

Nominet logoChange of status for the domain name

The domain name was registered at the end of the Registered Rights Sunrise phase. Following registration, an objection was raised concerning the IP rights provided by the applicant for that domain. This objection has been upheld by CMS, our IP validation rights agency and the domain name has now been made available for registration during the Unregistered Rights Sunrise phase.
As this domain originally appeared to be unavailable at the start of the current Sunrise phase, we want to ensure that all interested parties are aware that it is now available.

Auction date for Registered Rights Sunrise phase

The auctions for contested domains from the Registered Rights Sunrise phase will take place on 15 March 2011. NFPA, our auction partners for this phase, will be contacting all parties involved with the details of the auction process.

Unregistered Rights Sunrise phase – key dates

A reminder that the deadline for submitting applications to Nominet via a registrar for domain names in the current Sunrise phase is midday (12.00 GMT) on 16 March 2011, and the deadline for submitting the application to the IP rights validation agency is midday (12.00 BST) on 31 March 2011.
