    Hello- I did a search for a particular .com and found out through registrars who the owner of said .com was. I phoned him and found out right away what kind of **ick people can be. He wasn't using it and wasn't interested in selling (he though he had yahoo.com or something).

    Well- registrars said that the domain name should expire 2 years later (of course), which would be Dec. 8 2000(2 days ago). It is still unavailable and I was just wondering if it could be that their servers are not yet updated, or they are trying to send this guy his bill for renewel.

    Does anybody have any first hand experience w/ this kind of deal.

    Sorry for the long story.

    he thought he had yahoo.com or something? you mean the person thought that yahoo.com was their domain? sounds like an idiot to me if he thinks yahoo.com is his. must be why the domain he does have is not being used.

    well if he's not interested in selling it then I geuss you should look for a different name. Not much you can do.

    and if you can't get the .com address, get a .net, or .ws-simple as that (if they are available)

    I wanted mg33.com when I got my site started, but it was taken, it's not used either, so I got mg33.net, problem solved.
