What is the best approach to buying a detagged URL?

I tried to contact the registered owner but with no luck.

If you are a nominet member then you can contact them directly and they will let you know the position. Otherwise you will need to wait for the domain to be released which usually happens 2-3 months after the name is detagged.

If you aren't a nominet member sticky me with domain name and I will look into it for you.

Kevin,

There are a few sites that will tell you when a domain is going to be dropped after it has expired. I can send you one thru sticky mail if you want it.

Nominet are not currently releasing any detagged domains whatsoever. They are now taking several weeks to retag domain names after they are in possession of all the required documentation and PGP signed emails from the renewing tag holder.

They do not have the admin staff to spend weeks chasing up usually uncontactable former registrants just so that they can make 5 for re-registering the domain for an eager would-be registrant.

I recover several detagged domains every day on behalf of original registrants as well as new registrants and if you let me know the domain you're after I can tell you the full position.

Never, ever tell anyone a domain name you are having trouble with, except the registrar in question - ever.

That is sound advice, only ever deal with a Nominet member and insist on a faxed non disclosure agreement from them if you think your domain is particularly valuable.

Untagged? Detagged? Does this mean lacking whois info or what?

Nominet domains will be marked DETAGGED in the whois information.

Great news for anyone who is after a .co.uk detagged domain name. Nominet have very recently started releasing large tranches of detagged domain names and they are now becoming available on a daily basis.

This is the first time I've heard the phrase "detagged URL". Can someone explain?

Pleeker,

It's not a term used for global domain names but it is used for .uk domains:

Interesting. Thanks Hunter. No wonder I had never heard the term before.
