Another expired domain question
Expired domains from Melbourne?

There's been quite a bit about NetSol & expired domains, but I was wondering whether anyone had any experience of how long Melbourne takes to release expired domains?

There are two domains in question & both expired in early March. We're using SnapNames to try & catch the domains, but I've no idea how long this might take...anyone?

I've not used Snap - but if it does what it claims ....that might be your best bet unless you schedule 5 minutes out of each day to try to manually register. (ugh, tediousness).

About a month ago I stumbled across a domain name which had expired back in December but was not yet available. It had been registered through NetSol. I wanted that domain so much I set both SnapNames and ExpireFish to pounce when it became available.

SnapNames won the showdown, registering it for me about ten days ago. I never heard anything about it from ExpireFish, not even a report that the name's status had changed.
