Our local sea cadets had a domain name of www.northamptonseacadets.org which pointed to a secondary site on the main sea cadets web site. The registration for this ran out at the beginning of November. This site was registered by one of the parents who no longer has anything to do with the organisation. He emailed the commanding officer and said that he would let the registration expire, so that he could re-register then name himself. What we need is to re-register the domain under my account with 123-reg.com, whom I already own the www.northamptonseacadets.org.uk domain. The old domain name is still being held by the original people who the name was registered first. The people holding the .org name have been emailed and telephoned, but banging my head on a brick wall suddenly springs to mind. I have little experience on this, so can anyone shed any light on how long the original company will release the domain name to be re-registered by another company? I hope that makes sense.
