Wildcard Email Domains and New TLDs


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!

There are, of course, some obvious downsides to this plan.
Spelling mistakes in email addresses

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.
