Domain name expired and resold. Advice on getting it back?
by risingstarz - 8/31/11 12:05 PM
I let my domain name (a version of my personal name) expire this year because I am a full time volunteer in a foreign country living on very little and I do not need the domain for any real reason at the moment.
Maybe I shouldn't have done that. A company bought mypersonalname.com and is hosting a garbage page on it.
I don't want to rebuy it now, but I may want to do so in the next year. Do companies that snatch up expiring domains of little value usually hold onto them just for a year, or do you think they'll hold it?
Should I pay to bid on the name? If so, what's the cheapest service for this?
Thanks for any advice.
