    Wait patiently or ?

    Hi All

    I have just noticed a domain that has not been renewed, it expired a couple of weeks ago. Is there anyway i can get hold of this with out paying silly costly bidding fees after 33 days (is this right) or waiting for 76 days before it comes on the market again (is this also right).

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Is there a way to buy a domain from someone and retain the domain age. Isn't there such thing as leasing a domain from someone for 100 years where they can't redirect the domain without permission. I'm trying to get an aged domain for my current website which I just set up http://www.legacywebsitedesign.com There's another company out there with a similar name and I want to offer him the ability to LEASE the domain to me!!!

    Hopefully I described this correctly. You can look up the domain age on websites like http://www.websitegrader.com If a person buys a domain from another person, doesn't the domain age go back to 0 days old? I'm just going to ask a ton of people about this if I don't get the answer here...but if someone could help answer my problem...that'd be great.

    All domains are just leased from the domain registrar.

    Yes if a new person obtains the domain without also obtaining the web site it points to the age resets to zero.

    Nothing looks at how far into the future it is registered for (except scammers trying to get you to part with more money before you really need to).

    How annoying are you legacy - The idea of the forum is you post your question on a new thread, not post your question after someone else's question on thier post.

    The worst part is, your question got answered while mine sits unanswered - ****
