Logos for five two character .UK domains

So what’s been created on 2 characters .UK domains? While Affiliate Specialist earlier covered what been created on 1 character .UK domains, it’s now time to review what’s been created on the 2 character .UK domain names.

Over 70 % of 2 letter .CO.UK domains are still not developed after 1 year. One possible reason is that it takes quite some time
to decide what to create on those premium short domains. Another reasons is that many names have been bought by domain name investors for
either future use or to resell.

Many redirects on 2 character domains

Many major newspapers and businesses still redirect their 2 character .UK domain to their main website. Some examples include Ba.co.uk (ba.com), db.co.uk (db.com), ft.co.uk (ft.com), ge.co.uk (ge.com) and mb.co.uk (mercedes-benz.co.uk). Perhaps it’s because .com is more memorable and quicker to type. Hopefully, Nominet will launch .UK in 2013 or 2014 that might lead to more usage of the British extensions among major corporations.
