    Thanks to everyone who signed the letter: 3million.uk

    Domain Incite has covered it this morning:

    Smaller registrars say .uk release is biased towards the Big Boys
    http://domainincite.com/24355-smaller-registrars-say-uk-release-is-biased-towards-the-big-boys

    Also Nominet’s final .uk promotion started at 8am:
    https://registrars.nominet.uk/uk-rights-registration-promotion

    Please could someone (that’s good at drop lists) see what happens to the 3 million .uk rights over the next 10 days? We are expecting thousands to start disappearing per day to larger registrars.

    When do we need to register domains by?

    I think I've got a few that I've not registered yet.

    Just had an 'interesting' telephone conversation with support at my current registrar DomainBox (not for much longer!) - and so far they are not aware of and there are not honouring the free RoR promotion!
    - they are certainly doing their best to push me into getting my own Nominet Membership!
