From JZ.UK.COM to M8.UK.COM: Two Character UK.COM Domain Names Released

Premium British domain extension UK.COM has made two character domain names available on a first-come, first-served basis through leading British registrars.

The release of these previously-reserved rare domain names has sparked unprecedented interest from those wishing to secure the shortest and most valuable domain names on the internet, with names such as it.uk.com, my.uk.com and fc.uk.com snapped up instantly.

All premium names have been made available, including high-value names such as ok.uk.com, do.uk.com, hi.uk.com, so.uk.com, go.uk.com and many more.

The move offers a rare opportunity to secure your initials in a domain name — if your name is Kate Moss, you may want to register km.uk.com — or to abbreviate your existing company or domain name to enable easier recall.

Fans of Jay Z may want to take jz.uk.com while itʼs still available, or those wishing to build a dating site may want to secure m8.uk.com.

Ben Crawford, CEO of UK.COM parent company CentralNic said, "Many companies are now seeking short domain names, as they are so simple to remember and easy to key into mobile devices. Two character UK.COM domains are the ideal solution to getting your company the most memorable web address in Britain."

UK.COM is the only domain extension to currently offer unrestricted Two Character Domains for instant registration. Two Character Domains are now available through British registrars including 123 Reg and Global Gold.
