    I want to buy a suspended .co.uk and .org.uk name. They are not that desirable to others except those who are in a certain group of volunteers. On Whois they both have the following info:

    Registrar:
    Fasthosts Internet Ltd [Tag = FASTHOSTS]
    URL: http://www.fasthosts.co.uk

    Relevant dates:
    Registered on: 04-Feb-2004
    Renewal date: 04-Feb-2010
    Last updated: 22-Feb-2010

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

    Obviously I do not want to alert the current owners to the fact that I want it so is there any other easy way to be able to see when it drops other than look up the name several times a day.

    Regards

    Drop date is 7th May, but that's the easy bit. Get in touch with the catchers, the'll do the hard part for you.

    If you think anyone else might go for it, book it with a UK dropcatching service such as caught.co.uk. If you don't think anyone else will want it, cross your fingers, wait for it to drop, and then reg it as usual.
