Hello Andy, Are you aware of the services available that perform these types of services for a fee? Do a search for 'domain name back ordering' or something similar. Also, http://www.whois.sc has a free monitoring service but they don't automatically register the name for you like the pay services do. Hope this helps, James james at ebigman.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "Andy Warwick" <mailing.lists at creed.co.uk> To: <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Sent: Thursday, August 28, 2003 8:12 AM Subject: [thelist] Watching a domain name for expiry? > Hi > > 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. > > I'm aware I could approach the current holder, but I'd rather take my > chances once it is 'back in the pool', rather than alert him/her it's > wanted and thus boost its value. > > Note that this is a single domain I have a valid interest in, and is > not for grabbing multiple domains to 'squat' on. > > TIA > > -- > Andy Warwick > Creed New Media Design > w: http://www.creed.co.uk > > -- > * * Please support the community that supports you. * * > http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ > > For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester > and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org > Workers of the Web, evolt !
