    Hey

    I was just wondering do many people use .co.uk domains for PBN's obviously there is the annoyance of Nominet wanting all domains to be registered to a real contact address.

    So i was just wondering what do people do to get around this or is it easier to try and avoid .uk domains if possible?

    Thanks

    If you cant verify them, just avoid it. It's really that simple. Been there, done that.

    I use them as well. Haven't had issue to verify "co.uk" domains as user: "givensia" wrote. Don't worry and use them.

    The real question is: why not?

    Good PBNs should be all about diversity and quality. It looks natural to have links from .co.uk domains to .com

    I have had the same problem recently. I just register a .co.uk domain for my PBN and nominet emailed me that they can't verify my address. This is my first time registering a .co.uk and I am actually new to building my own PBN.

    I just ignore the email and it's been a few days and there's no follow up email about the one that they can't verify my address. Now I am skeptical to start adding content to this domain cause I am afraid that the domain will get taken down if I will not be able to prove my address.

    The domains will indeed be taken down shortly, if you don't send them your ID proof. So do that first if you want to use the domain.

    Any workaround for this? Or should I just avoid .co.uk domains?

    Why not register them in your name and make WHOIS registrant private?

    Sorry to drag up an old thread but I searched and have the same issue. Tempted to just do this and not do any more .co.uks or pretend they are for clients so I register and use different contact/billing/technical info.

    .co.uk is good since it has great reputation

    No problems will occurs using .uk domains. Since i'm using .uk domains in my network for diversification, haven't got any issues from that.
