What Right to Reserve rules apply to new .uk domain names?

Registrants who own an existing co.uk, org.uk, me.uk, net.uk, plc.uk or ltd.uk before Oct. 29, 2013 will have their .uk domain name reserved for free up until June 10, 2019, as long as the existing domain name remains registered.

For those who have the same name but different domain name endings — like www.example.co.uk and www.example.org.uk — can use the Rights lookup tool at www.dotuklaunch.co.uk website to find out who has the rights to the www.example.uk domain name.

When a third-level (.co.uk, .org.uk, etc.) domain is registered with another company and the corresponding second-level (.uk) domain is registered with us, it will be flagged for First Rights due to it’s corresponding domain’s registration elsewhere.

The Registry (Nominent) will contact the third-level domain registrant via email to confirm whether or not they want the domain name. If they do not want it, they’ll need to follow the instructions provided in the email to authorize the purchase. They will have 7 days to authorize the purchase, otherwise the registration won’t go through and the domain name will not resolve.

Stop clicking links in your email

Phishing schemes are attempts to steal sensitive personal information such as passwords, credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc., through the distribution of fraudulent email messages.

And they can happen to anyone, and any company. Whether it’s a specific attack on our company, or it’s an attack on your personal email account, there are a few things you should know about every phishing attack.

  1. Stop clicking links in your email. That unfamiliar company that sent you a confirmation email receipt for the software you purchased, even though you don’t remember the purchase, is really attempting a phishing scheme.
  2. Hone your inner spelling bee champ. Learn to be suspicious of any grammatical mistakes in an email. Large companies pay someone to proofread everything that’s sent.
  3. Double-check the URL. If you’re still going to click on links in your email, hover over the link with your mouse to see the full address. Hackers are notorious for creating websites like www.cool.example.com, or having a link say www.coolexample.com when it actually goes to www.cool.example.com. Safest bet: Use a search engine to locate that company and manually enter the URL you find.
  4. Change is inevitable. It’s always a good idea, especially if you just fell for a phishing attack, to change your passwords. For more information, see Generating a Strong Password.
  5. Send out an S.O.S. Use a search engine to find out how to inform your personal email provider, or the legitimate company that’s being spoofed by the phishing attack. If you need to email us, be sure to send it to phishing@secureserver.net. Make sure to forward it as an attachment.
  6. Don’t unzip. Never ever unzip an attachment. Legitimate companies don’t attach .zip files, or really any attachment.

Be diligent. Always remember to follow these steps to minimize phishing attacks both internally and externally.

Selecting Linux or Windows?

Web hosting is one of the most popular solutions because it offers plenty of flexibility, can scale to your business’s needs, and is reliable. It works by sharing space with others on multiple servers.

With Web hosting, you can upload a website you created somewhere else or that someone created for you. It offers more flexibility than site builders, but requires more experience.

Most hosting companies offer two different Web hosting “platforms:”

  • Linux uses the PHP programming language with MySQL databases.
  • Windows uses the ASP programming language with SQL Server databases.

Because these are not related to your computer, you don’t need to choose Windows if you use a Windows PC. If you’re not sure which one to choose, it’s OK; we’ll help you decide. For more information

If you’ve already decided you need a hosting account, you might get slipped up when you get asked, “Linux or Windows?” Fortunately, there isn’t a big difference between them and either type of account works for most customers.

To make sure you do get the right type of account, though, you should choose the type of hosting account you want based on how you’re building your site.

Development Tool Linux Windows
WordPress® or other Web apps -
Dreamweaver or other WYSIWYG apps -
PHP, MySQL, CGI, Python, or Perl -
ASP, ASP.NET, MS SQL -
I have no idea what any of this means -

It’s important to note that these are just our recommendations. Windows accounts will actually support most of these development tools, but we prefer Linux accounts.

What is A Record/ CNAME?

DNS Element Description
Nameserver Nameservers “point” your domain name to the company that controls its DNS settings. Usually, this will be the company where you registered the domain name.

However, if your website is hosted by another company, sometimes you’ll need to use their nameservers.

Zone File Zone Files are simply the files that store all of your domain’s DNS settings. Your domain name’s Zone File is stored on the company’s nameserver.
A Record A Records point your domain name to an individual server using an IP address. An example IP address is 123.4.67.5.

You can also use A Records to point subdomains (for example subdomain.coolexample.com) to a server’s IP address.

Every domain name has a primary A Record called “@,” which controls what your domain name does when some visits it directly.

CNAME CNAMEs point your subdomains to another server using a server name. Unlike A Records, CNAMEs cannot use IP addresses.

Most domain names have many CNAMEs.

MX Records MX Records point your domain name’s email to its email provider.
