    Wait patiently or ?

    Hi All

    (I'll try posting again - Please dont ask new questions on this post, start a new thread if you have your own question)

    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).

    Also, are these bidding companies a con, I can't understand how a company can say there is more interest out there but not tell you how many interested parties or what the current bid price is.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Unless it is parked or placed on auction it would be difficult for you to get idea about the current bid.

    gb,

    If you keep "poking" at the domain name, it'll probably not be released hoping that the registrar can gain a larger profit from it. IMHO, either pay the fee to buy it now OR wait silently and hope it's still available.
