.ukots.com is a pseudo-ccTLD for international use by the 14 United Kingdom Overseas Territories (UKOTs), 2 Crown Dependencies, and Hong Kong.
The .ukots.com domain was registered to standardize and bring together organizations and individuals from these locations in a single code, as there are numerous ccTLDs for UKOTs, making domain registration expensive for organizations and individuals who want to work in UKOTs, but are not able to register multiple domains under the various ccTLDs.
To show respect to the UKOTs and the local governments of each UKOT or CD, the creation of a cccSLD under the ccTLD .UK (operated by Nominet), was rejected.

The pseudo-ccTLD domains, .ukots.com, can be registered by organizations and individuals who have interests in UKOTs, CDs and Hong Kong.
