How do I 'think it is'?
Yes, I know they often/usually get snatched up for resale. However, I often do not want to pay a premium price at a wholesaler for a domain, but waiting until they let it go is a bit hit or miss (it could take years, and it may not be available for long).
For example, I tried registering my name as a .com, but it was taken. I periodically check, on the off chance it becomes available. Unfortunately it did, and someone else with my name (not a wholesaler) picked it up a few months later. I only found out when I next remembered to check and found out I'd been too late.
Obviously some may never become available, but on the off chance, a system that automatically checked and notified me would be extremely helpful. Actually, even just notifying me that it had transferred to a wholesaler would still be useful.
Thanks for replying.
