Not been given Nominet certificate for new domain

I haven't received any contact from Nominet so I can get the certificate for my new domain. It normally comes as soon as you register a new domain, but it hasn't arrived with this one registered through the Plusnet free domain offer.

Has anyone else not been able to get hold of their Nominet certificate?

Hi there.

Nominet certificates are not issued immediately.

When they get around to it, Nominet will send you a letter with a registration code. They will direct you to their website where you will be given the opportunity to print off your certificate.

This could take a number of weeks and is entirely out of our control.

Yep, I remember mine taking a few months to arrive. One I regged years ago.

They used to post the certificate and I did get a letter with a code (reminds me actually, I need to find it).

Though from what Mark says they no longer send the certificate themselves, just the code for you log in and print it if you like. Is that correct?

That's changed slightly from when I renewed mine nearly 2 years ago - also reminds me it comes up in November Smiley

If you log into your Nominet control panel, there's a button to print one off straight away. You need to click on the 'Your domain' tab once logged in then click the 'download' button and a PDF document opens up

Only signed up last week and mine is already there.
