How does expirefish.com compare to other methods of grabbing expired domain

Hi I have used snapnames with some success, but it does get a little expensive. I see expirefish.com offer to monitor unlimited domains for 9.99 per month and then register them for 9.99. Anybody out there tried them? Paul

Well, for one thing they are not a ICANN Registrar. So they channel through another company. The second thing is... Try and find a phone number on their site! They don't have one. I have a friend who owns his own company and he HAD his domain registered with them. Well, he had three months left on it prior to expiring... He got a renewal notice from saying he had two months left to pay for the renewal. Then three days later his domain stopped working. Their automated system pulled his domain off the Internet so it would not resolve. He could not get a hold of them. So he had to call the registrar they use (eNom). eNom had to remove the domains from ExpireFish's account and place them in a new account. Matt Stern the owner of eNom said the domains where marked for deletetion. But the thing is they still had three months until the domain expired! So if you want cheap, they are cheap. But I look for how they handle support before you vote with your money.
Snapnames is another issue, I think they are way over priced!
