Are you a one- or two-letter character in need of a domain name?

The IPKat has recently discovered that Nominet -- the internet registry for .uk names -- is in the process of releasing a number of two-letter and one-character .uk domain names. Nominet's Legal Counsel Daniel Kelleher reliably informs him that, now that holders of registered and unregistered rights have had first dibs, Nominet has opened up the process to the general public [second dibs?] and there are still 2,640 domain names available – including, and A full list is available here. Daniel adds
"Anyone interested in registering one of these domain names should apply though a registrar before midday on Wednesday 15 June. [that's tomorrow!] A £10 plus VAT fee is payable to Nominet in order to register, alongside any fees charged by the registrar. Any domain name where there is more than one applicant will be auctioned from 20 July 2011, with all proceeds going to the Nominet Trust charity
Further details can be found on our website".
'Nuff said. Go for it!

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
