Ok that means that the domain is registered but there is no current tag holder,
Do you wish to host your own DNS for your domain?
Or do you want demon to do it.

Firstly, are you or Demon going to host the DNS
of your global domain?
Secondly, go to www.nic.uk
stick in your domain ( don't put the www at
start ) in the search
it will then tell you who currently holds the TAG.
If the TAG holder is not yourself or Demon then you need to fax a letter
Nominet on headed paper asking them to transfer
the domain, you need to
check what information you need to provide and check with Demon that they
can host it.
It is not foolish at all to use your BECTA domain, and it must be
registered to someone ( usually your ISP when the names were given out ).
We use our becta domain, host our own DNS for it and DNS for 2 other
domains we own, we host our own web & mail services without any problems.
What Demon may mean is that they do not have the authority to transfer
domain to them, and that you need to do it.
