I recently used www.godaddy.com 's option for domain monitoring and purchase and was successful in picking up a domain name that had lapsed and was registered through Network Solutions. US$18.95 - for .com/.net . I decided to do this in order to try and pick up a domain that had the US spelling of a name that a client has a domain with the canadian spelling (i.e. centre and center). I was pleasantly surprised with the 3 day turnaround on the order and don't know if this is often the case. For that amount it was worth a shot :) hth Shelley Wonder if anyone can recommend a service/piece of software to keep on eye on a domain that I'd like to register, is currently due for expiry, and currently doesn't go anywhere except one of those search engine holding pages. Ideally I'd like it to alert me as soon as the domain in question becomes available, so I can get in there quickly and register it though my current ISP.
