Are you tired of the long UK domain names? Would you like something shorter? The UK’s domain registry announced that they will soon launch a much simpler .uk domain. This is extremely good news to businesses and blogs as the new .uk domain will appeal more to audiences across the globe.

Ecommerce Solutions For Your Business

Store Express offer reliable ecommerce solutions, and predict that a shorter domain might only benefit online businesses and blogs. According to the UK’s domain registry, businesses with domain names such as or will have five years to claim the shorter version of their domain name.

If you want to change the domain name of your ecommerce platform, the .london domain will be released in 2014 in the spring or summer. The .london domain is the first city domain to be approved by The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Although .uk, .london and other planned TLDs provide ecommerce platform owners with great and exciting opportunities for their business.

Nomitet, who will also be offering shorter .uk domains, believe that this will bring the UK closer in line with other countries, such as France who use .fr, or Germany who use .de.

Lesley Cowley, the CEO for Nominet expressed his opinion: "The .uk namespace is one of the most popular and trusted available, and we're committed to ensuring it stays up to date and relevant. We’re excited to offer the option of a shorter, snappier domain name that we believe will appeal to both our existing customers and the businesses and bloggers of tomorrow.” Research made by the same company found out that only 2% of all the respondents were sceptical about using .uk, while the rest favoured the idea of having a shorter domain name. These domains are especially useful for local businesses.
