Individuals looking for an online identity can now opt for a .me.uk domain name.

An overwhelming majority of the members of Nominet, the UK's national domain name registry, voted for the creation of the new domain names. This is the first second-level domain to be added to the UK domain name space since Nominet was founded in 1996.

Me.uk domains will be registered on a first come, first served basis. The registration fee starts at £50 plus VAT, but will gradually be lowered over the coming six months to £5. The initial high price is intended to discourage cybersquatters from registering domain names in bulk, Nominet said.
