Well I guess it wasn’t really a secret that Nominet was going to be offering gTLD registry services..
However the new registry services site makes it very clear that they are “open for business”
So far there have been rumours about Nominet’s involvement in a number of UK based applications including .london and a .wales, though apart from .wales nothing has been confirmed as yet.
With a track record like Nominet’s it wouldn’t be surprising if some of the other industry players were getting quite nervous.
