I wanted to know if anyone had any insight into getting domain names that expire.
A guy (not a dreamhoster) has had one for several years, but the page hasn't been updated since 2001, so I hope he's not paying attention or have automatic renewal. It expires in a few weeks.
How quickly can one pick up a domain once it expires? How does one go about this?
Does domainatron offer some sort of watch service or is there a way I can do this myself? I've seen some snatcher service at Verisign, but it's pretty expensive for such a speculative endeavor.
I apologize if I sound like some sort of blood-thirsty pirate- I'm not.
