    Didn't this domain expire already?

    I tried all of the suggested sites to see when this domain will expire and it seems like this domain should have expired months ago.
    When will they let this one go? There are many domains like this that I would be interested in but these things never expire.

    Domain Name: DNSME.COM

    I've been getting a lot of cached WHOIS results also. I was pretty surprised when I looked up a website that I visit often and found that their domain has been expired for about a year now. I e-mailed their admin and he told me they already renewed it quite a while ago. I'm using DNS Stuff.

    this domain was paid using hacked credit card and its under unpaid department

    wait for it until register.com delete it and then it will drop and 100s of people will fight to register it

    i'd suggest to edit your posts and remove the name or use (remote to community leader) if you want to keep the domain or backroder it.

    Thanks for the advice and post Bashar. I thought that was the reason but register.com just kind of sits on that thing for a long time. I wonder if they have to pay for the domain. If they do why are they holding it for over a year past the date already? In stead of $6 it seems to have cost them $18 already.

    It probably isn't the best idea to post a domain you are interested in but the truth is that I really don't care too much about it (not more than $7).

    I figure if someone wanted to buy it just because I posted it then their business is pretty rough and will probably go out of business in a year anyway so I will be able to get it next time around.

    Thanks again,
    -Steve

    register.com hold so many domains for way long period, seems they just resell them via other auction sites or private auctions.

    although i've noticed such domains drops with time and thats how i got few domains

    Just noticed Bashar that you picked up "dnsme.com".
    Don't really care as we didn't really have any use for it.

    But just wondering what purpose did you have for picking it up. Or do you must go through all of the posting in WHT picking up domain names. Is it really profitable to do that?

    Then I would buy DNSMIDDLEEAST.COM.
    It's available and you would probably want that too.
