    Has anyone any experience of how long it actually takes for a detagged
    domain name to become available again? I've been waiting for one to come
    'free' for about a year now, and its still detagged. I've read the guff on
    Nominet ( but just wondered if
    anyone has experience of how long it actually could take to be available -
    should I just give up and go for a different one?!

    The one in question was registered in June 2000, has a renewal date of June
    2002 and interestingly enough the 'last update' is showing as December 29th.
    Any idea what this last update (via whois) could mean??

    when anything changes a last update is shown. could be that the hosting
    company has ypdated something.

    Domains generally become available a few weeks after they expire.
    Although a good hosting company can sometimes claim a domain immediately
    after it expires.

    The quote is the only part of your post I can answer. It's just the
    last time the whois site updated against the database. Don't infer
    anything else from it.
