    Just in case anyone else has domains that have automatically renewed on Nominets new (unnecessary) price increase, you can un-renew them through Web Domain Manager. Apologies if everyone already knew this but I didn't until today.

    Login to Your Nominet control panel > Web Domain Manager > Click the domain in question > At the top right hand side of the page you will see a button to 'Unrenew'

    You can only do this if they haven't been invoiced. Once Nominet raise the invoice the facility is not available.

    Isn't there a limit to the percentage of domains you can do this with? Long time since I read the tag terms, might have changed.

    There is a limit of 5 or 5% (which ever is greater) to the number of domains you can delete prior to the invoice. Not sure it is the same for un-renewals.

    Not too bad then, as you would expect 4% a month if on a 2-year cycle.
