Following recent work by on of Nominet's issue groups, a consultation has been published on the current policy that provides registrants with a 90 day expiry period in which to rectify a mistaken non-renewal.
The current policy indicates that the expiry period is for the benefit of the registrant, however the policy does not further elaborate as to what is intended by "benefit of the registrant."
The Domain Expiry Policy Consultation describes the current recommendations which are the result of feedback from an initial version in February. The Domain Expiry Policy Issue Group has asked for feedback to be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3 September 2012. Feedback may be published anonymously.
Nominet has provided some statistical data on .UK renewals.
