New EU Proposal May Mean Powers Of A Foreign EU Country To Suspend Your Domain Name

This one seemed to slip out unnoticed last week or two, except for a few techies who flagged it up as being massively important. Scratch that, it's bloody horrifying. The EU is making a power grab for the control of the internet, by suspending, or blocking traffic to and from some domain names. It's not often techies get a bit panicked, this one se...

Just Acquired Agreed.uk

We've managed to purchase the domain name Agreed.uk at auction. Although the name does not come with its little .co.uk brother, we are happy to add it to our future development pile.  GreyWing is still of the opinion that the future is very much in the .uk domain name, we still expect to see a reduction in the number of sites using .co.uk as their ...

I wanted to add my own little 2p to the debate about Nominet suspending domain names without a Court Order. The debate seems to have seen Nominet take a fair bit of stick for this, but I don’t think it is fair and I want to give some real examples of why I think they are right. Some of the businesses I am involved in are in the lending sector; I ow...

How to kick start .uk

The adoption of .uk has been a little slower than most would have hoped. Whilst I'm in no doubt that .uk will eventually become dominant, there are certain things that Nominet could do to hurry it along. It would be a great help to Nominet if they were to publish anonymised data that said that some big companies were losing xxxxx number of visitors...

Exactly Why Nominet Shouldn't Be A Membership Entity

I watch with bemusement the actions of some members of Nominet in response to the latest price hike and the dropping of the multi year discount on the registration and renewals of domain names. First of all I can't really see why Nominet is raising more money, I can't see the reason for it.  That's not my concern though, my concern is why some memb...

What seems to be certain is that the DailyMail.com url is now resolving to DailyMail.co.uk/ushome/ and that the whois details are now showing the name as being registere...
