Problems registering a UK domain


Recommended Posts



Since my bug report was deleted it's obviosly an issue with my setup so will repost here.


When I try and register a UK domain via Nominet I get the following error....



Domain Registrar Error

Command syntax error



Can anyone assist?

Few obvious things to check that seem to make the Nominet module choke.


Check the postcode and that it has a space (if UK) i.e AA11 1AA

Check the name/address as no 'odd' characters

Check the registrant type and if company, ensure WHOIS Opt Out is NOT checked.

If the registrant is LTD, LLU or PLC, ensure a valid company number entered.


There maybe one or two more but these normally fix that error.
