    Ive found a domain that has been suspended a couple of months before its renewal date, does this mean that the owner has surrendered the domain or something?

    also how can you predict the drop date?

    anyone who knew anything about domains would not let this name drop!

    thanks for any help

    Do you know if the business using the domain has gone in to receivership?

    I have a similar one I was looking at registering, renewal date in November, it should have dropped in February, but it's still showing as below:

    [edit]

    You can use this for working out drop dates:

    its registrant type is a UK individual

    archive.org is showing that it rediected to unrelated site a couple of years ago which is no longer registered.

    the renewal date is not until july 09 but it says last updated 28 march 09 and then says This registration has been SUSPENDED.

    edit:

    but the renewal date is in the future? surely if it is suspended now it will drop before the date that it would have dropped if they failed to renew in a couple of months. if you get what i mean :p

    Yup but all the info you need is there to make a guess on a drop date :)

    Thanks for the help guys,

    along the same lines, once a domain is suspended can the original registrant renew it or is it too late?

    In normal circumstances you can renew a domain right up to the second before it drops, suspended before renewals may be different tho.

    guess the drop dates...

    Hmmm,
    I'm not that bright obviously! I still can't figure out how you can guess the drop dates for these suckers!
    desmond.co.uk
    exford.co.uk
    What would Skinner guess as the drop date for that one?

    anyone who can shed any light on the process of guessing / predicting these drop dates.

    All the best & good luck to everyone!

    I don't think anyone knows 100% yet waht is happening.

    100% nothing dropping till around the 18th of June if it has a tag, no one knows for sure if they all drop on 1 day, split up or random.

    Take your best guess,:D

    The early cancels will drop as scheduled, as they are not affected by noms current problems. :)

    Easly cancel is dealt with the same as Renewel Not Required tag, no warnings are sent thus it will drop as planned :)

    OK, I have come across a co.uk site that I REALLY want. WhoIs states...

    Relevant dates:
    Registered on: 25-Aug-1999
    Renewal date: 25-Aug-2009
    Last updated: 22-Dec-2008

    Registration status:
    Registered until renewal date.
    *** This registration has been SUSPENDED. ***

    Owner is a very large company. I can see that they own a magazine with website of magazine's name, which has not been suspended. Not sure but would guess they own a number of other divisions.

    Any clue as to why the one site is suspended? How do I find out more info? I know there are companies that catch dropped .com sites - how do I try my best to catch this one? Will the drop be the usual length of time after the actual renewal time, which is next August? This domain will be in big demand if it drops!

    OTTOMH (Off the top of my head), the 2 most common ways that a name becomes suspended before renewal:

    1. Someone complains to Nominet there is a problem with contact info/status of owner etc., they notify owner, put domain on 30 days suspension and then cancel it if not resolved.
    2. Company might be in administration (or similar).

    If the latter is true, then dont bother worrying about the former. You wont get it.

    Thanks, but strangely it appears to be neither of those. website was well known and well respected, company does not appear to be in administration. Certainly their other site is still going, as is their published magazine in this sector.

    Thanks - i thought that would be the case but still hoped

    ^ UKIP are a dissolved company. Nominet have been sharper in the past 12 months or so picking up on dissolved companies, and like a number of others, it has been suspended.
