Snagging some domains.

Hi Everybody,

How long after domains have expired will they be available for sale. I have my eye on one that expires in a few days. This company ripped me off so it would be sweet justice if I can snag their domain. Any suggestions will be greatly welcome. Thanks.

Good luck. I've been after a domain that expired on 12.03.2000. I believe they say that 45 days beyond the expiration date is when they are typically released. I really don't think there is a rule in this case!

PAGEONRESULTS have you called NS?
And try whois.net to see if it's on hold.

The domains have almost been expired for 2 weeks and nothing yet. Hopefully, they will release them soon.

If it's registered at netsol, the billing contact will get one invoice and then an urgent reminder via mail. The reminder comes about week 3 after expiration.

Isn't that the truth! They send it out by mail sometimes too.

You can count on a minimum wait of 3-4 months...usually longer...sometimes less.

3 to 4 months. Hopefully it wouldnt be so long. Does anyone know if it would help to contact Network Solutions/Verisign after about one month has passed from the expiration date. Let them know that I want to buy the domains. Maybe they can speed it up.

And they don't seem to consider to which country they are mailing. My reminder arrived AFTER the deadline date. Luckily I didn't rely on them reminding me.

if you call them they might put the domain on-hold quicker but it wont expire anyway for a month and forward i have been in contact with them over the phone 2 times, and with there chat staff 3 times and there is nothing they can do.
What i feel strange is that you can request a grace period where you will think about if you want to have the domain or not if you are the domainowner and the expireation date has already passed. I mean either you want it or not and i don't think that you need a extra month to decide if you want to pay minimum $35 or not or what do you think?
