System Announcements

9 October 2012 release

At 07:00 (BST) on Tuesday 9 October 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.

Nominet EPP schemas

We would like to remind registrars using the Nominet EPP schemas that we will be removing the early Nominet EPP schemas (v1 schemas) on 1 November 2012. In preparation for this, we will be removing those schemas from the EPP Testbed as part of the October release.
