Do I have to have a host as soon as I've registered my domains?!
Sounds stupid but I remember years ago (I've never registered before) a friend got a certificate when he registered his domain. Am I remembering incorrectly?!
Did you friend file and prove trademark usage for the same terms? That might explain the paper. (I think...)
And no, filing a trademark doesn't grant absolute exclusive usage for the domain name-sake, either.

Registrars don't issue certificates on paper after registration.
Until you got into the 100's of domain names, then it might just be a lot of wasted paper.
You'll find a scratch off panel on it, which provides a password for use in Nominet's administration site and will let you make limited changes to the domain name, as well as print off a paper registration certificate; Nominet don't send out certificates anymore, so that's as good as you'll get!
The recent ones where for new domains, but I believe I have some for renewals also.
As was stated earlier in this thread it can take some time for the certs to be issued. The ones I just received where for domains I registered about 3 1/2 months ago.
