CentralNIC have advised us of their annual database maintenance period. This is scheduled for 09:00 (GMT/UTC) Sunday January 29 2012. They did not provide a duration, however we expect the service to be considered at-risk until at least 13:00. During this period it will not be possible to register, renew or update (contacts or nameservers) CentralNIC based domain names. Customers who attempt changes will be presented with error messages, renewal and registrations will be queued and manually processed by the Domains Team. (Common CentralNIC TLDs are .uk.com, .uk.net, etc.) The domains will continue to resolve correctly throughout the maintenance window.
Final Update (January 29 2012 – 09:18): This maintenance has been completed. All CentralNIC functions are available again.
