- Consultation Responses

  We would broadly support the thrust of the proposals in relation to the tag holder agreement but have a slight concern that the change will mean that a registrant could approach Nominet with little notice to the tag holder and request Nominet to make a tag change.

In a very few cases the leverage provided by the domain registration is enough to ensure that both parties to a dispute are focussed on a proper resolution.

We would therefore prefer an explicit period allowed to expire before Nominet steps in.

We would therefore like to see the addition of a phrase similar to 'and act upon your request after thirty days.' at the end of the amended para 9.1 in the Terms and Conditions.
