What happens after registration?
Once we have received payment for your me.uk domain name, we will send you confirmation that you are the legal registrant. You must check the details contained on confirmation carefully to ensure that they are correct. If there are any mistake you should advise us immediately so that we can change them accordingly. Your complete details will then be recorded on our database which will make it easier for you to make any further changes to your registration.

Will my details be made available publicly?
As the legal registrant of a domain name, your registration details will include your name and a contact address. You may use our contact address if you require some anonymity . This information will be made public through ours and other independent online WHOIS search facilities, which provides details of the domain name, the registrant and their contact address. The UK Registrar and ourselves have a duty to make this information available to anyone who wishes to trace the legal registrant of a domain name. It is your duty to ensure that we have up-to-date contact information for you, so we can keep the UK Registrars database updated.

How long is my registration valid for?
Domain name registrations made in the .uk Top Level Domain are valid for two years. After the initial two-year period has expired, the domain name will fall due for renewal. You will have first refusal to renew your registration by paying for it for a further two years.

Who will remind me that my renewal is due?
You will be able to tell when your registration is due for renewal because the expiry date is printed on your confirmation. Additionally the UK Registrar will contact us for payment before the renewal date and we will then remind you that your renewal is due.

How much will the renewal of my me.uk registration cost?
We will charge our clients the standard charge for renewals set at that time and we will guarantee that this will be no more than paid for the first 2 years unless the UK Registrar increases their charges by a considerable amount. It is unlikely the Uk Registrar will increase their prices for Domain Name renewals as their have so far been no increases ever, by any of the worlds Top Level Domain Name Registrars since Domain Names first came in to existence. In fact most prices have dropped considerably in subsequent renewal years and we would assume that your domain name renewal in 2 years time will be significantly cheaper than we now charge.
.me.uk Domain Name Registration Rules

The rules for the .me.uk Second Level Domain ("SLD") as amended from time to time are incorporated by reference into the Rules for the .uk Domain (the "Rules"), and form part of the contract of registration. Click here to see our general rules.

Where a conflict exists between the Rules and the rules for the .me.uk SLD, the rules for the .me.uk SLD shall have precedence.
The .me.uk SLD is intended to provide a personal namespace within the .uk Top Level Domain. It is anticipated that registrants will be natural persons who have an association with the UK.

Any entity may register in the .me.uk SLD provided the registration complies with our terms and conditions, which in turn comply with the UK Registrars Rules and the rules for the .me.uk SLD, in each case as amended from time to time.

No limitation is placed on the number of names that may be applied for on behalf of a single entity.

The UK Registrar will take no action with regard to the registration or use of a Domain Name unless such registration or use conflicts with the UK Registrars terms and conditions, the Rules including the rules for the .me.uk SLD, or UK Registrars Dispute Resolution Policy and Procedure, in each case as amended from time to time.

There shall, without exclusion, be a sufficient demonstration of an abusive registration if the registrant is not a natural person and cannot demonstrate that they registered the domain name with the agreement at the time of a specific natural person, and that the domain name was a reasonably faithful representation of that person's legal name.
