Having a quick look through Alexa’s top 100 UK websites, I was surprised by how many of these have forgotten to buy the .co.uk top-level domain version.

Here’s the main ones I noticed:

apple.co.uk
facebook.co.uk
myspace.co.uk
wikipedia.co.uk
blogger.co.uk
flickr.co.uk
wordpress.co.uk
digg.co.uk
reddit.co.uk
stumbleupon.co.uk
about.co.uk
download.co.uk

As they are all very popular, well-known websites the volume of brand queries are likely to be very high, many via “Pages from the UK” searches on Google.co.uk where most of these websites won’t be listed because they don’t use the .co.uk TLD and are hosted in the states. Still they could always try and buy the domains back, it might cost a little more than the original registration cost though!
