Has anything dropped today?
Been through around 50 on today's droplist and all still suspended.
I don't think nominet have enough money to monitor that one task at the weekend. Have you any idea how much it would cost to pay someone to look at the site once on a Sunday?! lol Yeah I would really trust them to diversify and move into other markets. Anyway to answer your question I am still seeing 2,685 domains that haven't moved today. Absolutely pathetic that nobody there is available from 5:30pm on a Friday night until 9am Monday morning.
Mind you their rep David has looked in quite a few times, so all is not lost...
It seems in UK that the more money at your disposal the less you do. I've got servers in 5 countries and it's only in UK where there is nobody there at the weekend. Germany, US, France, Italy 24 hours a day 7 days a week.. UK nope shut for the weekend. So I guess it's not just Nominet
Maybe they should put up the price of domain registrations to cover the cost?
It's quite funny really. They tell us how wonderful they are and they're doing us a favour raising the prices 50% ... new infrastructure..... diversify.. blah blah and yet they can't even get Alf the handyman just to pop his head in on a Sunday and see if one of the like three things they actually have to do is still working I bet they can manage to plan board meetings in 5 star hotels in the Bahamas on a Sunday night though
Classic British monopoly in action - utter complacency re: customer consideration and service.
Wish Nominet were regulated; they'd fail on so many levels.
On that subject, can rights be taken away from Nominet for controlling this market?
I asked this recently and the answer were essentially no. Unless the government steps in.
I wasn't chasing but was stuff dropping and the DAC not reporting it?
I dropped sim-cards.co.uk and got a cancellation email at 07:06.
It wasn't registered when I checked yesterday but someone has picked it up now
