    One of my domains expired and the registar did not send me an email... Even if it was on auto renew. Now they are charging me 275$ in fees if I want it back - they have it on hold or some shit...

    How long do ya'll think they will hold it for?

    Yeah, got word a few days ago that I was in redemption period. I had another domain I let expire a while ago and checked it out and it is still being held on to. I guess I will have to be patient...

    If it's a high pr your best way to get it would be to place backorders on namejet/snapnames. If it isn't and you think no one would be interested in getting it the second it gets dropped from the registry then let it get dropped and then register it again.

    It does not have good PR, it is a whitelabel adult website. It was the one that was bringing in most my traffic (not much).

    I doubt it will get snatched up by someone and it is not a HUGE lost. It is more that I had it linked up in a few directories and all that done manually, so kind of a time killer to do all that over but whatever.

    Any way to find out when a domain gets dropped? Is there such a service?
