    I'v just done an whois on 2 domains and they are both owned by the same person, there are no name servers and the registrar details are

    Registrar:
    No registrar listed. This domain is registered directly with Nominet.

    Does this mean the person who ownes the sites works for Nominet? :confused:

    Nope

    It means the registrant chose to pay £80.00 plus VAT for a 2 year registration period rather than paying the £ 6.00 (incVAT) that most large scale registrars (TAG Holders) charge.

    Normally happens when customer / registrar (and or hosting company) have a falling out and customer gets sent direct renewal notice from Nominet and in a panic pays the full amount & has the 'security' of knowing he / she is not dealing via a 3rd party.


    Best Regards

    When you say detagged do you mean the registrar doesn't exist anymore? Is there a way of getting these domains before they expire, if not once they expire they will go through the normal drop procedure won't they?

    DETAGGED means that no Registrar is managing the domain name. Either Nominet (at £80 for 2 years) or a .uk Registrar must manage a domain name for it to be renewed.

    The only way to potentially get hold of a domain name before it drops is to contact the Registrant directly.

    DETAGGED domain names usually drop via a standard process.

    A domain name which is DETAGGED is not the same as a domain name that is registered directly with Nominet. DETAGGED domain names simply say:

    " Registrar:

    No registrar listed."

    in the WHOIS. The WHOIS used to use the word "DETAGGED" but Nominet changed the output some years ago and use of that term has been largely discontinued.
