    I first saw this mentioned in today's system maintenance email notification.
    I can't find any other info about this anywhere.
    It is listed under Account Management Services on nominetstatus.uk

    Does anyone have any info?

    Its an angular js application so it gets rendered in the browser instead of server-side, therefore you can quickly get an understanding of what the application is aimed at by just inspecting the source.

    Its quite a decent sized application so a lot of work and effort has gone into building it... im not sure they realise its actually publicly accessible.

    And with a little bit of mocking the APIs it expects, you can have a look at what's behind the login form :)

    Looks like it's an application used by owners of TLDs that Nominet is managing, perhaps.

    Will do some more probing if there's interest!

    @mrt - i'd prob not reverse engineer the source publically as i doubt they will be too chuffed, i did notice the routes tho and was pretty obvious what they intend to launch, its quite a good sized angular app to be fair :)

    They usually have public-facing services behind Cloudflare so i would assume they don't mean to expose this to public traffic during staging.

    So much for consulting with the members then if they were already building a platform since before July...
