Snapped name on Yahoo

Who do they bill?

I'm about to receive a domain that's listed on Yahoo and Looksmart through snapnames (snapback).

I think that this one was listed before the $199 one time (and therefore of course, way before $299/year)

Will it be deleted? Will it stay? It is definitely commercial, but they have nobody to bill to. Any ideas?

I think they will only be sending recurring billing to the new domains, not the ones that have been there a while.

Thats right - if it was registered before the introduction of the annual fee, it will remain in the directory and you will not be charged the per annum fee.

The only danger could be Yahoo's web gardening team picking up that the site listed is no longer there or that the new site represents a different entity - very unlikely!

Just picked it up today. Then, I just looked and the looksmart listing has been yanked already. Netsol sat on the thing forever.

I'm waiting for hosting to take effect. Saw another thread that there was a yahoo link checker running around.

I could have used any domain name. The only reason I tried this was because of the LS and Y! listings.

I can't remember when the Yahoo annual fee started. Can anyone remind me?

Will sites already listed in Yahoo before the annual fee was "announced" be grandfathered in, or will they have to pay the annual fee? Yahoo sucks!!!
