    How to get domain?

    Hey all

    I have a recently expired domain name, that's now been snapped up by some registrar company and I would like to know how I can proceed to get it back.

    My friend had a similar problem once and he contacted them and they gave the domain over to him, so hopefully it'll be the same this time.

    The problem is though, I'm not sure who to contact in order to get this domain back. Wondering if you can help me?

    Ok so you're in dispute with the other guy.

    Is it a .com domain or a (.co).uk domain or what?

    it seems some customer from dotster who didn't setup his contact info correctly.

    but dotster can be your best contact for asking.

    Although is the official ICANN-affiliated registrar for the registration, it was placed through one of the resellers, not Dotster.

    Chris, you should expect there to be significant cost involved to now retrieve the domain name, if it can be retrieved at all.

    Not exactly what you're hoping to hear, but the most likely scenario based upon my experience.
