Sorry if this has been posted, but NSI is no longer dropping domain names directly.

I can certainly understand why they would stop dropping names with that kind of abuse going on. There isn't a server alive that could keep up with the escalation.

So what's the bottom line on it? When an NSI registered domain name expires, how long will they be holding on to it, and when will it be available again for registration?

Supposidly 30 days after the expiration date. They have been holding them for 45-60.

45 - 60 seems to be the norm. Although there are domains which Ive been watching which expired 3 months ago!

Cant believe that they can get away with this!

The domain name (registered by NetSol themselves) expired on 6th Octover 2000, and I am _still_ waiting for it to be released. No end in sight.... :(
