.uk domain name history
The .uk TLD was first used during the 1980s and domain names were first managed by a group known as the Naming Committee. As demand for .uk domain names grew, Nominet UK was formed to manage .uk registrations and take over from the Naming Committee which was actually a voluntary group. Established in 1996, Nominet is a private, not-for-profit company.
