System Announcements

1 May 2012 release

At 07:00 (BST) on Tuesday 1 May 2012 we will have a systems outage lasting about one hour when we will be deploying a software upgrade. During this time all registration systems, Online Services and Business Intelligence (BI) will be unavailable. The Automaton will not process email requests, but they will be received and queued for processing when it restarts.

All other Nominet systems will continue to work as normal during this period.

Multi-Year Registration periods will go live in this release. The technical specifications with the details of the EPP and Automaton commands that will be used with the new functionality are available here.
