England Deserves its Own Domain!
Heard the one about the Englishman, the Scotsman, the Welshman and the internet?
Trouble is, it's not that funny. Not if you're the Englishman, anyway.
For many years the UK's online entity has been represented by the co.uk domain extension. The Welsh and the Scots have been campaigning for their own country-specific domains .cym and .sco respectively, despite not being classed as independent countries.
But what about the English? Er... well... hmmm. A deafening silence. Until now.
We believe that we - the English - should also be allowed our own independent voice on the internet and show our patriotism through our choice of domain name.
To do this, We're collecting signatures on our online petition so we can lobby ICANN (the people in charge of internet domain names) to make .eng available.
Please sign the petition so we can make sure a corner of the Internet remains Forever England.
Sign The Petition!

|It's a shame there isn't a political entity or government office representing England which can take on this kind of stuff. Such things only get pushed for Scotland, Wales & NI I guess. Sigh...|

|As a Welshman, I'm fully behind having a .eng domain extension.|

|England deserves its own domain name extension - or have we been disestablished as a country?|

|We need this in the interests of fairness and equality.|

|It is only right and fair that if Scotland gets its own domain name, so do the rest of the constituent nations of the United Kingdom.|

|The advent of the Web has united the world together and has broken down country borders. Therefore, it would be in everybody's best interests if the .uk domain was done away with, and each area of the UK has it's own domain.|

|I'm not signing this so England can have a representative domain, but rather I think it would be useful for websites IN English, too.|

|England should have its own.ENG Domain so local companies and English people can have a .eng as they are English. the .UK is fine and I think correct for companies that are in every part of the UK but smaller (Local)companies need a .eng so it shows they are English. also people should be able to have there own web sites and emails with .eng|

|Here is a good example of why it is needed : http://www.checkmyfloodrisk.co.uk/ .uk extension but no coverage for Wales, Scotland or NI.|
