    Strange one though I know someone who was in contact with the administrators in early 2006 but had no joy :eek: wonder who had been paying to renew it since then.. and why they let it get suspended ?

    I thought the company went into administration in 2006. Does that make the current owner details false by default, or is somene still reponsible for controlling the company assets? I'm not sure that it makes sense for it to continue to be renewed year after year if the company itself no longer exists. The act of constantly renewing it, instead of actually selling it off, almost implies that nobody actually owns it. Of course, I night be totally wrong, but and this is just my view.

    The company goes into administration, then the administrator has a duty to dispose of the assets correctly, including maintaining all those little bits of IP which may be transferred or sold off to a third party. Besides which, he/she will need to manage the company email too.

    Thanks for the info. I'd have thought 3 years + would've been enough time to figure out what to do with this domain name, but I'm no expert in these matters, so maybe it isn't at all unusual. If there is an email account attached to the domain, they've been a bit careless in almost letting the domain name drop.
