    Hi,

    I recently did a whois using DNA Pro for btg.co.uk. The whois results for Registration Status: show as 'No registration status listed.' & Relevant Dates: do not show the Renewal Date for this domain?!?

    My question is 'HOW can a registrant choose to have 'No registration status listed' & 'Renewal dates' omitted when they register a domain?'

    This is obviously a measure on the registrants behalf to prevent catchers knowing when a name will drop? Should they forget to renew this will give them a bit of extra time before the name is discovered.

    Thanx in advance..

    WHOIS for btw.co.uk looks normal to me. Are you sure it isn't a consequence of going over the lookup limit for the day?

    The reason for a domain name only having a last updated date is explained a number of times on this forum. I encourage you to utilise the search facility and read some old posts. :cool: These posts are there for a reason; not because the admin forgot to delete them. :)

    Hilarious. :razz: You've made a whole seven posts on this forum and suddenly you're an expert. FYI your conclusion is completely inaccurate.

    'Invincible' - I only asked a simple question and I agree i should have used the search facility, however I couldn't readily find what I was looking for and thought that someone 'in the know' would be able to provide me with a quick answer to my questions.

    I could well have come to an inaccurate conclusion if it was just that, but this is why I posted my 'comment' on the forum so that others may enlighten me. If you know the answer I think that it would be much more helpful for you to suggest why you think it is rather than being so pedantic.

    Regards

    I would appreciate it if the following comment was checked for accuracy and then enshrined into a FAQ somewhere for eternity.

    A .uk domain name that only has a Last updated date, and no Registered on (or Renewal) date, is a Pre Nominet domain name (also known as a "prenom"). These domain names were registered prior to Nominet's existance. More information about Pre Nominet domain names can be found here. There is no way of predicting when a Pre Nominet domain name will drop.

    Why does it happen so often that someone comes across something they don't understand about our systems and so they immediately jump to a conspiracy theory to explain it? Is it only me that finds this odd?

    No, it's so odd that aliens must be involved :)
