We are glad to inform you that the new TLD .ME.UK has been released and is now available for registration through the Web Hosting Control Panel. The management policy of the .ME.UK top-level domain is relevant to the rest of the .UK TLDs that we offer for registration and comes with the same special features, the most important of which are:
– 2-year registration period
– renewal available again for a 2-year period
– renewal requests processed only during the 5-month period before the expiration date
– the WHOIS information cannot be altered directly from the Control Panel – the UK registry, Nominet, must be contacted by the domain name owner for WHOIS changes.
To learn more about the specific .UK domain features, please refer to the previous news that concerns the CO.UK and .ORG.UK domains’ release.
New TLDs coming soon – .EU and .DE!
The .EU and .DE top-level domains are to be available shortly, as well. They have the following specifications:
.EU – The .EU TLD is the unique TLD set for the European Union and, thus, can be registered by any person or organization established within the European Community. Registration of .EU domain names is possible for 1-year period only, and renewal must be ordered before the expiration date for the same period. Typically for the most of the TLDs (country code domain names), WHOIS / ID Protection is not supported.
.DE – This is the TLD for Germany – probably the chociest country TLD lately. However, there is a special requirement set by the registry of this domain, DENIC, referring to the registrant’s address information that needs to be presented at the time of registration. According to that requirement, it is obligatory, when entering the administrative contact information, a street address or P.O. Box within Germany to be presented, in order to gain approval of the registration. There is no WHOIS /ID Protection service available for .DE domain names and it is possible to choose a registration period from 1 to 10 years.
