    Today I have been trying to register a name. I guess quite a few people have been going for it as well so I am not holding out too much hope!. It is still coming up with all registrars as free but when I try to register it things do not seem to happen. Even a few hours after putting the request in it is still coming up as available. Any ideas what could be the issue?

    Has there been some sort of issue with Nominet today or is there a way Nominet lock certain domains from being registered even when they appear to be free in whois?

    I have seen this before in the last few months, seems to be gremlins in the WHOIS system. Only thing you can do is wait or call Nominet directly.

    The other is to try a query against the name via the automaton, I've a feeling that will give you a result while the whois won't.
