    Hello, after a little advice:

    Can you please confirm if all .uk domians now drop 92 after expired date ? Or does the 99 days still apply ? - Nominet still show docs about 92 and 99 depending if the domain is detagged. What is the exact situation ?

    I understand there are sometimes exceptions that we cannot control, but is 92 days what happens 98% of the time ?

    Also, are there totally different numbers of domains drop on different days -

    We have about 7.5 million registered .uk domains - (as opposed to the 9 million registered), so im guessing 1.5 million less is not a bad first list ?

    I have analysed domains with expiry dates from the 10-10-2010 to the 27-10-2010.

    If we work on todays date (22nd Jan 2011) and use the 92 day rule, then we are looking at expired date of 22-10-2010: we have got approx 1900 in our drop list for today (showing as susspended etc, and some how now be reregistered or available)

    Dates after this - 22-10-2010 to the 27-10-2010 are all suspended state (and 1% have been reregistered), Which is correct.

    Dates from the 22-10-2010 back to the 14-10-2010 are all registered etc or available. Which is correct.

    However dates 10-10-2010 to the 13-10-2010 - i only have about 15 domains dropping in this file, for each date (with all our other dates we have 2000 odd) - does 15 look ok ? But also that is even stranger - on all 3 of these dates, 90% of the domains in the list are still in suspended state.


    What are your thoughts on the above ?


    Any Help appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Yes, 92 days only.

    100% of the time, if the domain is going to drop, i.e. it's not on hold at Nominet.

    Good first list :)

    Definiately shouldn't be only 15, but remember that everything in that period would have now dropped/been renewed so it sounds like all you have in your files is the domains that were on hold at Nominet.

    Hello,

    Many thanks for your reply.

    just got a couple of questions about drop process:

    Once a domain expires, is that it ? can the original owner renew it ?
    How many days after the expiry date can the original owner renew a domain or get the original registrar to renew it ?

    Looking at Nominets docs it seems they can renew it right up to the drop date.

    What is the situation with these domains: They were all on domainlores drop list, but now they are dhowing as being renewed after their expiry date, but before their drop date - im finding this more and more with the research iam doing -

    Many Thanks

    They can be renewed right up to the second before they drop.
