Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
This domain expired 4 days ago, and said to my self I dont need it so I'll let it go, but today I received an email from a German email address, calling me by name and saying they've noticed it on WHOIS. Didnt they notice also the domanin expired ?
I'm just wondering if this is genuine offer or some third party is persuading me to renew this domain ?!
What do you think and whats your experience with this ?
Generally: even if they noticed it might expire, maybe they just want to make sure to get it and not be beaten by some domain sniper. is it a german freemail-adress? while that wouldn't say it's a scam of some sort (I know one guy who does serious business and still uses a freemail), it's an alarm sign. That aside, germans are known to do weird things, trust me, I'd know.
to make it public the email was received from the website example.com, only that the email comes from @example.at The .at domain forwards to same .com domain.

I giggled a lot with this situation!
Anyway, this one domain is part of a suite of domanis (the others with no dash) which was my plan to start a pan European venture business, including an incorporated business name. I can propose to sell the whole business if they want, cause obviously they thought about the same thing.
