    I have the receipt in my inbox, they have taken payment and now it tells me it is reserved when I tried to find it in my account.
    Called Godaddy and the .co.uk was actually registered in 1993 (I must have misread one of those backward date formats).

    Really should have known better than to think it wouldn't be reserved.

    Oh well at least we know there is an issue with .uk sites on Godaddy where availability is not certain even after paying. Sorry for the false alarm.

    I think you'll find plenty of good ones you can still get - It's just going to be a matter of giving it a go each time.

    I wont give but will need to check the original date of registration on all the .uk's to ensure that I don't spend money on 100 sites for them all to bounce and wait while godaddy has my cash for 2 days before refunding.

    Code:
     Domain name:
            creditcards.uk
    
        Right of registration:
            creditcards.co.uk
    Code:
    Domain name:
            creditcards.co.uk
        Relevant dates:
            Registered on: 15-Apr-1997
    
    The .uk is reserved for the .co.uk owner until 2019. Domainers are waiting for the release of unclaimed .uk domains next year :xf.wink:

    .nz (New Zealand) went through the same process not long ago. They opened up the second level, whereas you had to register .co.nz (or another 3rd level) in the past. But the claim period lasted only 6 months... Good news for domainers :whistle: But the registrants who ignored the news or procrastinated may regret it down the road.

    You should check out the uk droplists ;) Lots of domains drop every day and, of course, with that drop it frees up the .uk

    BTW you haven't got creditcards.uk regardless of what the registrar told you. It has reserved rights for the .co.uk owner
    *edit* Just noticed you said godaddy. That says it all. They have no idea how the .uk market works and are quite possibly the worst registrar for uk domains apart from 123reg.
