    Caught the domain supplyteacher.co.uk today, out of interest did a whois lookup for supplyteachers.co.uk and under the registration agent it says:

    This domain is registered directly with Nominet.

    How comes the domain isn't associated with a TAG.

    Cheers

    Mark.

    Purely guesswork, but maybe:

    - the old registrant didn't tell their old ISP to renew it

    - the old ISP detagged it just before renewal (in the days before positive renewals)

    - Nominet issued a pro forma invoice to the registrant

    - The registrant, for whatever reason, paid Nominet their hefty fee

    - The registrant, for whatever reason, has continued to pay Nominet their hefty fee ever since!


    Can't think of anything else obvious.
