ICUK Expand Domain Namespace

ICUK are pleased to announce their role in the biggest expansion of the domain namespace since registration began.

The days of traditional .coms and .co.uks could be behind us, as a rollout of new extensions will see a surge in creativity hit the market. New domain name extensions include .technology, .shopping, .coffee, .training and even .bike.

Paul Barnett, director of ICUK, said: “This is the biggest expansion in the market we’ve ever seen and it gives people a chance to secure the simple address they always wanted, or find one more relevant to their business.

“This expansion also gives people the chance to be much more creative with their domain names, once the limitations of familiar extensions are gone.

“New names have already been snapped up – we’re seeing a surprisingly large number of people get on board with the changes securing themselves great names.”

ICUK are marking this historic event by offering free whois privacy on all of the new domain extensions as well as many of the existing options.

Mr Barnett said: “We believe privacy should be a right, not a privilege, which is why we’re offering whois privacy for free.

“We want to see our users protected from identity theft and spammers and hope they’ll take up the offer when registering one of the new, exciting domain names through us.”

The new domain extensions offer a wide range of options for businesses and individuals in a variety of industries. Those in service industries will find options such as .builders, .construction, .florist, whilst cafe and restaurants can choose from .menu or .kitchen. Bloggers can choose fashion related extensions, such as .clothes and .diamonds, and photographers can create an online showcase with .gallery or .photos.

The new domain names are now available through the ICUK website. Prices start from £15 for 1 year, with discounts available for resellers.
