    Hi, as you may well know, Nominet are hosting two 'round table' consultations on Tuesday 11th about dropping domains. They are actually virtual because of the virus.

    Unfortunately my shifts have changed and I am nursing that day, so I'm unable to attend, and they're not being recorded.

    If anyone here is going to participate or watch, I wondered if you would be able to provide me with feedback or any other means of finding out what is said.

    Please feel welcome to PM me if so.

    Nominet members should have just received an email from Leanne Kenny, with a 'last chance' to register for these 'round table' sessions.

    Also, a request for a second time, please could somebody who attends give me feedback, as I am nursing that day and can't attend myself. Thank you.

    From the email:


    "2020 .UK Expiring Domains Consultation Virtual Roundtable

    11th August | 09:00 - 10:30 | 13:00 - 14:30



    Last chance to sign up to our .UK Expiring Domains Consultation Roundtables taking place on Tuesday 11th August at 09:00 and 13:00.

    Join Nick Wenban-Smith to discuss theconsultation and our plans to implement a more transparent process for informing registrars and the wider public when an expired domain name will be made available for re-registration.

    We are also considering different methods for releasing highly desired expired domains which are contested (i.e. there are multiple parties seeking to register the domain name).

    This consultation comprises two areas for input:

    1. Whether domains should be made available for re-registration throughout the day at a specific point in time, based on the time stamp we have for the original registration, or be released at specified single point in time, say 2pm every day; and
    2. Since a very small minority of domains are intensely contested with multiple parties interested in re-registration, whether to alter the way in which we release these domains. The options for alteration are (1) auction model – two variations, and (2) economically controlled access to expiring domains. "
