the few registrars you can apply for are
a/ waste of space and sometimes not even holding page or wrong url
b/ very expensive c/ won't accept 1 or 2 characters lol when using search function
most are waste of time. try
i see this at top;
Please note: As this process is outside of our normal domain name registration, some registrars may not be able to process applications to register these previously restricted domain names automatically through their websites.
If you have any problems registering a short domain automatically, please contact the registrar directly using the contact details on their website to express your interest in your required domain name. They will then be able to process your application manually.
can you apply direct to nominet or a decent registrar that charges normal 2 year fees before the nom fee?
who are people using? i am going to apply for a few i think
The Namesco fees...
Domain Monster are saying that they will be accepting applications, but no info yet.
Any registrar can apply for them, the ones listed on that page are those that have asked to be listed as they have removed any restrictions that may have previously not allowed these domains to be reg'd through their systems.
i checked a few of the bigger co's on that list Grant and they don't allow you to search for 1 or 2 characters
some of the smaller co's ie domainers, have the wrong url or doesn't even resolve properly or have no information or contact details
you would think one registrar would have got it's act together to allow applications, and nominet would have checked the list of so called registrars before listing them
how do you know which domains have had someone apply for ????
lol, sounds about right. All registrars can apply whether they're on that list or not, just done one myself. The process is totally different from a normal registration though so I can't see too many big registrars re-coding their systems to allow for what will be a smallish number of registrations.
They're listed on the sunrise whois:
top right here:
I've processed a few for customers, this is outside "normal" processing, so have done a manual process, however, looking at the figures quoted in previous posts, I should perhaps up the fees a little
They were until Nominet broke their whois
Separate names with a comma.
