.UK RoR Special Release | HEXONET Success Rate
Beginning July 1st, 2019, thousands of previously reserved second-level .UK domains were released for general registration. It was the perfect opportunity to try and secure quality .UK domain names that were not previously available!
We were excited to get on board and be one of the select registrars to offer this unique .UK RoR backorder service. We immediately got to work finding the best ways to ensure that we were successful in registering as many .UK backorders as possible for all of our customers and partners.

Our team worked hard to create the solutions to compete against 319 different registrars to secure successful registrations. From there we added the special feature to the customer control panel and a special, limited time, release page on our website. Our approach allowed site visitors to search the RoR names by keywords and scroll through the thousands of names soon to release. A simple checkbox system made it simple for our customers to add names in hopes of capturing them as they became available. With the uptake in orders placed and new account sign-ups, we're proud of our success in getting many great domains during the release.
Working on a first come, first served basis, customers who placed their applications early on had an advantage. This made it so that there was no auction, and that if you were the first customer to place a backorder on a specific domain name, you would get it simply for a set backorder price. Our customers were able to secure great .UK domain names for a great price.
Our team worked diligently and put many hours into bringing this new technology to our customers and partners and we couldn't be happier with the results. Anthony Schneider, Software Engineer that led the project says: "I'm very proud of what we've accomplished." The teamwork and effort placed into this project were unparalleled, and we're excited that we were able to produce such great results for our customers.
We’re pleased to have received a tremendous success rate for the .UK RoR backorders and that we managed to register excellent domains like sms.uk, memo.uk, jetsetter.uk and many more, including many 2-letter .UK domain names such as jk.uk and gx.uk! Our team blew the .UK RoR backorders out of the water, and left our customers happy with their new domains and the decision to trust in HEXONET.
