.Uk domain hits 10 million milestone

March 16, 2012

10 million .uk domain names currently registered.

Today .uk domain registry Nominet announced that the .uk domain crossed the 10 million domain milestone this week.

The domain name swarvemagazine.co.uk, registered on March 12, represented the 10 millionth domain.

Of course, more than 10 million domains have been registered to date, but this is the base of currently registered .uk domain names.

The .uk domain ranks fourth in the world for size, following .com, .de (Germany), and .net, according to VeriSign’s latest domain industry report. That makes it number two for country code domain names, with .tk for Tokelau nipping at its heels.
