Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
From the looks of it, there's a separate outfit listed for billing from admin/tech contact, plus it's in the name of someone in a faraway state. So I'm hoping it'll fall through the cracks with their paperwork and get turned loose, since it's not in a highly competitive area. I wouldn't write because it couldn't be transferred unless it's renewed and I don't want the people's attention drawn to the fact that anyone's interested. I didn't even do the whois search at Netsol out of paranoia.
A side note: I had subscriptions to watch the name with both SnapNames and ExpireFish. It was SnapNames that got it. I'd be interested to hear of anyone else's experiences with a "showdown" like this, with these or other programs.
Now, to wait until those companies catch on, and let me know my names are available...
I didn't read their fine print, but If they try to get ME to pay THEM for grambing my names, HA.. see you in court sonny... thats INCOMPETENCE in action. There is no reason why *I* doing a manual search on a whim can get my names before a company using tech, and charging an arm and a leg. If I waited for them, I'd probably lose the name.
