    No, that does not apply to a .com or .co.uk domain TLD's. You can register a .co.uk domain even if you are not a resident of the UK and are in no way related to the UK.

    Incase of eUKhost since they serve customers from all across the globe and not just the one's in the UK, a .com extension is the most appropriate I'd say. Whereas if it'd be a company that has its targeted audience in the UK, a .co.uk domain would probably be more effective.

    .US is one of the restrictive country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United States. Registrants of .us domains must be the US citizens or a foreign entity with a presence in the United States, so not everyone is entitled to get .us domain registered.

    Not all of these domains are available for international registration, right? I tried to register a .us domain and it told me I need to provide documents that I am a resident of the USA (which I am not)...

    For the registration of .lk domains, you need to contact LK Domain Registry.

    .LK domain is ccTLD ( country code top-level domain ). For the registration of .lk domains, you need to contact LK Domain Registry. You may go through the above provided url which would help you in locating the agent's for domain registration services.
