    DoucheB.ag can be registered. :-D

    Then again, don't waste your dollars on a banana domain.

    Some updates: I reached out to the government of Antigua and Barbuda as well as Afilias (technical registry back end for .ag TLD) regarding this issue, no official response yet.

    While Nic.ag didn't care to respond to tons of my communications sent to them, they closed without response 44 of my tickets at mydomains.nic.ag and left one ticket open, yet without any response.

    Also there are seem to be some interesting things going on with whois data. The domain was registered on November 9, more than two months passed since November 9 2017, so the domain was likely to enter pendingDelete and/or redemptionPeriod, yet whois keeps unchanged since November 2, 2017.

    Update:

    Received response from Afilias (technical registry backend for .ag tld):

    So, Nic.ag confirmed to Afilias that Nic.ag, in contrary with their own regulations, allowed/allows for years registration/renewal of reserved/prohibited domains, not only b.ag but also many others.

    Also, in contrary with their own regulations, Nic.ag considers re-selling .ag domains as illegitimate activity.

    Nic.ag, in contrary with their own regulations active at the time of registration of b.ag and other reserved/prohibited domains, don't want to issue refunds they promised to do if such names were registered.

    No surprises here, as everything was said regarding this sh*tty Nic.ag "registry" already.

    The one thing to add here is Afilias doesn't give a sh*t either.

    This is indeed painful. Hope you move on and possibly avoid some tld not certain of their terms.

    Nothing important at the moment.

    I heard that some .ag investors who owned quite a few two-letter .ag domains, including some of have-to-be-reserved names like b.ag, were concerned and asked .nic.ag if it is safe to renew their .ag domains. I don't know what further happened.
