What's the latest on Netsol releasing expired domains?

 12:54 pm on Apr 11, 2002 (gmt 0)

One expired March 27th with a PR6 that I'm absolutely lusting after. The site's still showing up with a "closed" sign on the page - not even a for sale and the name's right on topic for what I'd use it for.

From the looks of it, there's a separate outfit listed for billing from admin/tech contact, plus it's in the name of someone in a faraway state. So I'm hoping it'll fall through the cracks with their paperwork and get turned loose, since it's not in a highly competitive area. I wouldn't write because it couldn't be transferred unless it's renewed and I don't want the people's attention drawn to the fact that anyone's interested. I didn't even do the whois search at Netsol out of paranoia.

Um, I'm still tracking one that theoretically expired last December. I am sure there are older expirations still in the database.

I just picked up a NetSol domain that expired last December. SnapNames was able to register it for me just a few days ago, roughly four months after the name expired.

A side note: I had subscriptions to watch the name with both SnapNames and ExpireFish. It was SnapNames that got it. I'd be interested to hear of anyone else's experiences with a "showdown" like this, with these or other programs.

I'm still waiting for my domain expired in July.

I'd check for a batch release RIGHT NOW. I signed up with TWO companies (whose names escape me) to snag the names I wanted for over 6 months. I just checked, they were available! I got them both.

Now, to wait until those companies catch on, and let me know my names are available...
I didn't read their fine print, but If they try to get ME to pay THEM for grambing my names, HA.. see you in court sonny... thats INCOMPETENCE in action. There is no reason why *I* doing a manual search on a whim can get my names before a company using tech, and charging an arm and a leg. If I waited for them, I'd probably lose the name.
