British .ac.uk Domain Registration - .uk is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United Kingdom. The use of .uk rather than .gb for the top-level domain is due to its pre-existing use in the (now obsolete) JANET Name Registration Scheme in which the order of address components were reversed. As with other ccTLDs in the early days it was originally delegated to an individual by Jon Postel. The Naming Committee was organised as a mailing list to which all proposed names were circulated. By the mid-1990s the growth of the Internet, and particularly the advent of the World Wide Web was pushing requests for domain name registrations up to levels that were not manageable by a group of part-time voluntary managers. It is possible to directly register a domain name with Nominet UK but it is faster and cheaper to do it via a Nominet tag holder..
