Discussion in 'Drop catching Domain Names' started by Murray, Sep 3, 2020.
Can we get back to playing ‘spot the Nominet Director in the thread?’ They feel like good days now!
Looks unlikely that it was done this way? Unless patched
@Ben Thomas thats because someone has already booked that domain
I see, you mean back ordered with Fasthosts themselves?
No, they have already added that domain to be transferred/stolen and placed into their account... I would strongly advise you dont get involved because Nominet are aware of this and are working out of hours to investigate it... but its up to you, choose a different domain and the response will be different if that domain has not already been selected by another thief.
No, I'm not interested in stealing anybody's domains. I just think it's crazy how such a large registrar can be so fucking complacent LOL
Nominet might reconsider the auction route after all of this nonsense.
But surely with this issue, they would never make it to auction.
Perhaps it's a set up
They could lock the domain for the last 7 days in preparation of the auction start. You can imagine what their offices will be like on Monday with all the complaints
yummy.uk literally just got renewed - here's looking at you @Ben Thomas .
Add to the renewed ones.
Also, Recruitment .uk looks like to join the list, I know a lot of are chasing this one but check the Whois and see date of last modification. May be it will still drop but not sure and a bit worried that DAC will be waste on this and who is bold enough to chance it my just end up getting the domain.
recruitment .uk dropped and caught before it was renewed..
The who is data would certainly suggest it is about to be renewed. Hopefully it will drop before they are able to.
@StudioVision was SocialMediaAgency.uk a hand registered domain? I see it dropped on the 6th and you picked it up on the 9th and now its at £750, people are in a bidding frenzy
Nothing to do with me I`m afraid.
Just dropped and caught by one of the top dog....
Haven't you all heard? What we're seeing here is the new method of drop catching that Nominet proposed instead of auctions, they just forgot to announce it was in place. Probably..
Now that's a real winning move. I had some like this during last year, it gave me more satisfaction knowing I'd hand registered them.
