new .UK domain names – don’t be fooled by the scam via mobileMay 14, 2014 11:13 am by websquared Posted in Domain Names
The .uk domain names are due out on 10 June 2014 – yes exciting
however I am writing about the fact that there seems to be a scam running around via a company calling themselves getmyuk.com who are contacting people via their mobile and telling them to “claim” their new .uk domain name now
Now a couple of things
- If you own the unique .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .net.uk, .plc.uk or .ltd.uk domainnames then the shorted >UK version will automatically be reserved for you until June 2019
- If you decide that you do not want it – then and only then will it become available to others
- They are not yet available to purchase – so don’t use any other company!
So don’t get caught up purchasing something from this company targeting you – you don’t need to – more often than not their are either charging more than they need or are tying you in to other things.
If you are unsure about all of this – contact me – and I can tell you what will happen regards to your own domain name
If in doubt ask!
