    Hi!

    Does anyone know if there is a way to find out who the previous owner of a co.uk was before it either a) changed hands or b) dropped?

    Thanks,

    Flinty

    Hi Darren

    Yes i did that. Found out it there was a Sedo page.

    Does this person's details look familiar to anyone?

    "Country of origin:
    Netherlands
    Value added Tax (VAT) status:
    VAT Applicable
    Sedo community member since:
    February 2005"

    So there are actually no tools out there or services to do this? Just good old fashioned detective work?

    Thanks,

    Flinty

    It is against the Nominet T&C to keep history on domains isn't it?
