Will i get the domain ?

Here's the situation, a domain has expired in Dec 2001, but waiting for it to clear from Netsol database so that I can register.
But the site is still running off a set of DNS from another company.

Is that possible? If I apply for snapback will I get that domain ?
Just need some help on this matter. thanks

Netsol again? This question gets asked a lot, and there's never any real answer. If it is an "average" domain name, you can expect it to be released anywhere from 1 to 3 months after expiry. But there are a lot of good Netsol-registered names that haven't been released after several years.

thanks Ex s. well i guess i'll have to wait & see - since it's that long it hadn't been released i think it might be a good domain.

3 Months Later?
That's netsol for you I guess,
At least some small outfit is a lot quicker to send the delete command to the SRS.

Mabye I'll get lucky, I've got my eye on a name, it's expired 10 days ago and I'm drooling over it,
This is one of those time's you wish you knew someone at netsol to give it a little 'push'.

Unfortunately verisgn/netsol/network solutions they do what they want, when they want.
"domain support group"
