I can see both sides on this, although perhaps it would have been good if they could have sent some form of password or ID/reference number through the post to the address listed on the Nominet WHOIS details?scott said:I can see from their point of view - but surely there must have been something else. If I didn't have the two bits of ID they needed, the only other option was brick wall?
I don't think the advice of leaving it to expire was great!! There's soo many domain catching services around and plenty of individuals with Nominet TAG's and sophisticated software to pick up domains within seconds if not milliseconds of them expiring!!
