    Even though ive backordered a few domains over the years I dont really know why this 92 & 99 days to drop exists.

    Could anyone explain the reasons behind these numbers but mainly which number should be used and for what reason. Most drop 99 days after renewal date and detagged drop 92 days. I know there are exceptions but dont know what that would be.

    Pre Nominet names normaly drop on the first date and normal registrations drop on the last date. You can tell which it is by looking at the whois

    Is "Pre Nominet" before 1998 or 1996?

    Thanks.

    As far as I know pre-nom drops are now treated like every other drop, could be wrong tho!

    Thank you for the link Grant but searching didnt give the reasons why 92 and 99 days have been picked. 30 days for suspend, 62 & 69 days to hold your thumb up your #### while waiting?

    Also almost everywhere say "typically" 92 or 99 which implies this isnt always the case.

    I borrowed this from an old post as it seems to have vanished from Noms site:

    The initial seven days is ignored if the domain is detagged or reg'd directly with Nominet.

    All this is much too compicated for me to understand :confused:
    Lucky I am not a Nominet member and catch names :)
