As of June 2014 it became possible to register ".uk" domains. Previously all domains ending in UK had at least one more public part.

What to change

We need to change lib/publicSuffixList.js to account for the possibility of someone registering a ".uk" domain. To do this we need to modify the value for ".uk" to 1 and add all the other possible public extensions like "" and "" etc. (See and search for "nominet" for a full list.)

  • Priority changed from Unknown to P3
  • Ready set

As discussed on IRC and in the codereview, in the long-term we should automatically update lib/publicSuffixList.js based on Mozilla's Public Suffix List, with a build command. This can be addressed later, however please file an issue now, that we don't forget about it.
