Nominet Update on 27/02/13

Following the Nominet Board meeting on 26th February, Nominet are NOT now proceeding with their original proposal on ‘’ but we will respond to feedback by looking at whether a revised proposal will address issues raised in the recent consultation.

Over the coming months, this work will explore:

• A revised phased release mechanism based largely on the prior registrations of domains in existing third levels within .uk and in which contention between different applicants for the same domain name should be reduced or eliminated.

• Measures to improve security across the whole of the .uk namespace. This would include increased focus on encouraging the adoption of DNSSEC.

• A firm focus on registrant verification and some form of UK presence.

• Further investigations into the impact on the SME sector.

• An appropriate pricing model.

PC Pro: Nominet – no security revamp for domain

PC Pro: Nominet – no security revamp for domain

PC Pro writes “Nominet has no plans to introduce the mandatory security measures included in the .uk domains announced this week in its existing addresses.   Nominet launched a shorter .uk version aimed at businesses, promising additional security features.

Under Nominet’s .uk proposals, companies would be required to have a physical UK presence, while the domains would include routine monitoring and notification of malware and a DNSSEC digital signature which minimises the risks of a domain name being hijacked”.
