Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Good question, but I am afraid the answer falls into the crystal ball department. It also depends on who the registrar is. If it is one of the biggies, then you could be looking at, oh, anytime in the next, um, well sometime. Unfortunately the only thing to do is keep checking every day until it suddenly becomes free and then nab it quick!
We had a bit if a discussion on the very same subject some time ago here [webmasterworld.com]. I know it is not the news you were wanting, but...
Hang in there,
I know what you mean, but then I own quite a few .coms that on the "get 'round to list". I guess it is the ones that never intend to do anything with them that upset the boat. Oh well...
Good luck with your waiting..
long time no hear! Thanks for letting us know about your sought after domain.
For the record, the one I was watching got renewed! <grumble>
I can be quite rewarding to keep after those domains in the phatom zone. Did you know that that is how WmW came about? Brett snagged the domain after it was not renewed. And here we all are today.
So keep checkin' on your domain, hope you get it.
