Discussion in 'Drop catching Domain Names' started by boxerdog, Oct 26, 2009.
i had a name booked that should have dropped yesterday, is there any reasons why it still hasnt yet?
Generally if a name doesn't drop on it's due date it's because there is an internal nominet process holding it back, so it's generally one of the following:
It's owned by a Ltd company that is in Administration, and as the domain is held to be one of the assets the company itself needs to go through the Administation process before the name is renewed or deleted.
The registrant has requested an extension while they renew the name - ie by posting a cheque etc
There were extenuating circumstances why it wasn't renewed on time - eg the Registrant or Company owner has died, or the registrar has gone out of business and the Registrant cannot transfer out, so Nom has extended the deletion process until it is sorted out
Someone has challenged the Registrant's rights to the name, and the process was not complete before the Registrant allowed the name to expire.
There will be other reasons, but generally they are of the type listed above.
Did the name begin with "N" by any chance?
cheers for the info Ty
It wont drop
yer i know that now
Or another alternative is an arsehole is in the process of buying it for GBP100 and called mummynet to hold it back.
Why would someone acting proactively be an arsehole? Sour grapes there perhaps!
I'm guessing that applies to both of them
Why don't you ask directly to who tells "it will not drop"?
"it dropped and got caught"
Separate names with a comma.
