Summary:

We are delighted to invite you to a seminar to discuss Nominet’s proposals for changes to the .uk namespace. This event is hosted by Nominet in partnership with The British Computer Society Internet Specialist Group and the Digital Policy Alliance.

In July, Nominet, the not-for-profit organisation best known for running the .uk internet infrastructure launched a second consultation on proposals to enable .uk domain name registrations at the second level (example.uk instead of example.co.uk).

If the proposal goes ahead it would represent a significant change for the .uk namespace and for those who use it including businesses, consumers and registrants of .uk domains. You are invited to a seminar to learn more from Nominet about the proposal and give your feedback on what it could mean for you. Nominet is keen to solicit your expertise and views as part of this consultation.

This is an invitation only event and as places are strictly limited, priority will be given to those who have not previously attended a Nominet meeting on the proposals. Also please note it is only open to BCS and DPA members. Please register your interest in attending by completing the registration form by 4 September 2013. Only delegates with a confirmed registration will be permitted to attend.

Further information regarding the consultation can be found on Nominet’s website.
