    You may have seen the Nominet email today:

    Subject: [Nominet, COVID-19 coronavirus update] From: marketing@info.nominet.uk

    Which gives members a renewal discount in April / May due to COVID-19:
    More here: https://registrars.nominet.uk/uk-namespace/dot-uk/nominet-support-fund-2020/

    On that link it says:
    Then it says under the FAQ at the bottom:
    Effectively if you are a large member group you can get 10% of your renewals free in April / May (per tag or registrar). Some of them have already created hashtags and landing pages:

    #HereForYou
    https://www.ionos.co.uk/hereforyou

    #OpenWeStand
    https://uk.godaddy.com/open-we-stand

    If you are a self managed tag holder who renews any names in April / May.... You would need to make sure the names actually expire in April/May (most of your portfolio will not).

    On top of that....

    Up until 31st March 2019 there was a free one-year .uk ROR promotion.

    Then there was a final free RoR promotion 3rd - 14th June 2019. 1&1 ionos put through over a million: https://3million.uk/ror-stats/

    So in April/May (2020) there are thousands of .uk expiring that need renewing....

    However as those names have expiry dates in March & June they are not eligible for the April/May support fund?
