.UY Opens Up Registrations At Second Level

Registrations of .UY domain names at the second level were opened to all eligible registrants on 10 July.

The opening up of registrations at the second level followed a transition period where any .UY domain name that was registered at the third level on 10 June 2012 was automatically given the equivalent second level domain free for one year. Following this registrants must renew their domains as they would any other domain. For any conflicts, uynic developed rules that are available in Spanish on the registry website.

The changes also saw a near doubling of registrations for the ccTLD overnight on 12 June with an additional 33,929 domains added.
