    I looked up a whois yesterday on a site im after. the information said:

    Relevant dates:
    Registered on: 16-Oct-1998
    Renewal date: 16-Oct-2006
    Last updated: 02-Oct-2006

    Registration status:
    Renewal required.
    *** This registration has been SUSPENDED. ***


    So i was dyign to find out how i could register the name seeign as it was suspended but i couldnt figure out how as all the registration companies were saying it was taken.

    Today the whois is saying this:

    Relevant dates:
    Registered on: 17-Oct-2006
    Renewal date: 17-Oct-2008

    Registration status:
    Registration request being processed.


    The registrants details are totally different so it is a new registrant for this domain.

    My questions are this:

    How could I have registered it when it said suspended?

    many thanks in advance

    Read this site and you will find all the answers.

    The site was released yesterday by Nominet back to the free market for someone to register. People have automated systems that will register the domain seconds (maybe less) after it is released.

    Its called "drop-catching"...read on.

    It has now been registered by someone.

    If you want to "catch" a domain before someone else does then you need to do it in less than 20 milliseconds from it being released. (if it's a good domain).

    The current owner may sell it to you if you ask nicely with cheque book in hand.

    Ahh, I see

    Not a very fair system then!

    I have been reading this site for a while now, before the .eu registration period. Great forum.

    Im so gutted. I was so excited yesterday when I found the name had been suspended. I have been after it for a long time.

    I have sent a request to the registration agent to ask the person who registered if he wants to sell it.

    How can i determine what is a fair price for a domain?

    You may as well tell us what it is now that it's been registered and we'll be able to give you an idea of value?

    if it is a business intending on using it then fair play to them for getting it.

    if its a speculator then at least i have a hope of getting it if its within my budget

    Whatcha reckon on a valuation?

    Looking at the dates you posted this is a strange one as it seems to have dropped one day after the renewal date, im guessing it was previously owned by a liquidated company and someone got lucky?

    It was caught by BB-online who catch domains for the public (via snapnames I think), so the bad news is that someone booked this with them, probably because they want to use it. I don't know the new registrant.

    I mean that they got lucky because it didnt follow the normal cycle when a domain drops. Liquidated domains are dropped at random.

    thanks for the info grant

    i understand a little more now!

    Would you saythat the fact their are sponsored links on the website now mean that it it likely NOT to be a person intending on using the site for anything else?

    I'm guessing that is a generic page that bbonline point all their caught domains to until the new registrant changes it. Could be wrong tho. in which case you may well be able ti buy it. I'd give it a few days and see what happens.

    yeah I seen that,

    thanks for recommending it but it doesnt have any use really in my view

    first off my competitors have massage-tables.co.uk so it could direct rraffic to their site

    and

    customers use the plural of the word when searching and buying

    but hey, for 1.99 i may aswell just park it

    thanks again though

    very true about the keyword rich

    this is good for SEO, right?

    i.e. a keyword rich domain name is very important?
