Nominet currently refuse to release the zone files citing, amongst other things, privacy, the belief that it's "their IP" and to deter undesirable activities. Conversely Versign have made the .com and .net zone files available for well over a decade. ICANN actually mandate zone file release for gTLDs. http://www.nominet.org.uk/sites/default/files/Lord Macdonald Report final.pdf - see page 34 for detailed information about Nominet's view on releasing the zone file. Zone files are mentioned from Section 8 onwards. http://www.verisigninc.com/en_US/ch...s/zone-file-information/index.xhtml?loc=en_US - Verisign zone file access Is it finally time to campaign for Nominet to make access to zone files available and, if so, under what sort of circumstances and to whom?
