uk_get_blocker_contact

Until June 10, 2019, if you want to register an available second level .UK
domain name, and the name is already registered as a third level .UK domain
(for example. .co.uk or .org.uk), the owner contact information for the
second level .UK name must be an exact match to the owner contact
information of the equivalent third level .UK domain name.

This command checks whether the specified domain name is registered as a
third level .UK domain (for example. .co.uk or .org.uk) with the same
registrar and reseller, and if so, returns the owner contact details.
