How does priority allocation of .UK domains work?
All existing owners of .CO.UK domains will have their equivalent .UK domains reserved for them for five years (at no cost). During this five year period you can decide to register the .UK version of your domain name, so long as you continue to own the equivalent .CO.UK.
Should there be a scenario where there are two or more domains with the same website name; priority allocation of the equivalent .UK domain will be offered to the .CO.UK owner. Where is no .CO.UK owner, it will be offered to the .ORG.UK owner. If there is no .CO.UK or .ORG.UK owner, the equivalent .UK domain will be offered to the .ME.UK owner.
Further details on priority allocation of the .UK domain extension can be found here
