Nominet has, after much prevaricating, launched its latest
money grubbing venture plan to revolutionise the UK Internet industry.
Rather than having fusty old example.co.uk or example.org.uk businesses can go straight for example.uk - Mind = BLOWN!
It's always been the case that people could register misspellings of domains and snaffle up all the email which was misdelivered. Nominet is just doing their best to make it a little easier.
Whoever owns "oc.uk" now gets every single email meant for ".co.uk" which was typed without due care and attention. Nice.
