    Hi,
    New to the forum! :D

    I have been watching a domain come up for expiry and it has now been changed to "suspended"

    Can anyone tell me when this domain is going to hit the deck?



    Relevant dates:
    Registered on: 20-May-2006
    Renewal date: 20-May-2008

    Registration status:
    Renewal required.
    *** This registration has been SUSPENDED. ***



    Cheers!

    Look below the Acorn Domains logo at the top of the page and it shows the dates of domains dropping today

    Excellent! Thanks guys.

    Been waiting for this domain for nearly 2 years.


    Do domains drop at a certain time? Or as soon as it hits midnight?

    I don't want to piss on your fire gymrat, unless it's something totally obscure then the chances of you getting it are slim to zero.

    Might be worth having a quick read around this site, some very good articles and discussions about "catching" dropping names.

    People have systems set up to catch these quicker than you can blink your eye, so unless you have a system set up then you have zero chance.

    (Just so you don't stay up all night trying)

    They (generally) drop throughout the day with some exceptions.

    ps. Sign up to Backorder expiring UK domains enter the domain name in the box provided. If it's booked then you haven't any chance. If it's free ask Chris quickly to add it and thats your best chance.

    How can I tell if it has been already booked?

    The details state:

    Status suspended

    Register taken

    Then it has a box that I can tick to book.

    Does that mean no one has booked it on their site?

    PM me if you like I can tell you whether it's worth you bothering.

    I promise I won't go after it. If it's not bookable (thinkyour too late anyway now) you can wait, see who got it and make them an offer of say £500.

    Your domain will drop today. From registration date which is 2006 it may not be a so good domain since there was only crap unregistered around 2006. I am chasing a name tomorrow but if I did not strike it I can catch it for you for GBP50. Let me know tomorrow evening when I am around.

    Hi.

    You can book it in for backorder with us @ DropSystem.co.uk, if another client hasn't already booked it.

    Bookings are charged at GBP 30. We refund you in full if we are unable to secure the domain.

    PM me if you've any questions.

    Cheers, Simon

    Can i ask why there are two drop dates for each day?

    The info at the top of this site states:

    Today's drop dates are 20-05-2008 & 27-05-2008
    :confused:
