First second-level .uk domains delegated
Nominet has delegated the new second-level .uk domain names royal.uk, princeofwales.uk, supremecourt.uk and jcpc.uk to the Royal Household, the Household of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council respectively. These institutions requested delegation in order to allow them – as bodies considered independent from government – to migrate away from the .gov.uk space. These domains are the first of the 69 domains requested by government in response to our recent consultation to be agreed and delegated by Nominet. Work is underway to agree the status of the remainder of the list, and we plan to publish a final list by February 2014.
