This update includes news about the .DE and .UK registries.
.DE elimination of the local administrative contact requirement
The .DE registry, DENIC, updated its domain policy on May 25, 2018, eliminating the requirement for a local administrative contact in Germany. Prior to May 25, companies located outside Germany had to provide a local administrative contact. Under the new rules, a local contact will only be required for a legal case, when a holder not based in Germany will have to appoint a person in Germany.
.UK elimination of the local address
The .UK registry, Nominet, announced that the local address for .UK domains is no longer required, effective May 22, 2018.
