Well - it has a registrar lock - so that makes me less than hopeful. It was updated on 10/24/04 - but the site is currently without content. It's set to expire 1/25/05.

What would I need to do to try & get it when it becomes available? Or does the fact that the info was updated in October make my chances less than likely?

People that 'collect' multiple domain names drive me crazy! Only for one specific reason though.

My Mum's Business(Satin Moon Quilt Shop - been around since 1978) had
www.satinmoon.com. The company she had the name registered with failed to let her know when it was due to expire(not really a good excuse) so it was snapped up. Some guy has had it for the past 5 years, and won't even return e-mails to sell it! He hasn't done anything with it, so now we have www.satin-moon.com. I wish this guy would give it up!

Without knowing the name, I can't get too much info for you. The Registrar Lock only means that the owner has a lock so that it can't be hijacked. Next, the update date isn't all that relavant. It's the EXPIRE date you need to look at; thus the 1-25-05 date is the important one. It's a little tricky, but this diagram should help. Check into signing up with a drop service like Snapnames, or Pool, or Enom Club Drop...

Good old James Boyce from Everett, WA...
I would be happy to try for you if you want, or you might look into Network Solutions Certified Offer. Sometimes people don't return email etc because they think it's a scam or something.

Most domaniers that pick up names do so for two reasons:
1. Re-sale value.
2. Parking; pay per click revenue based on expired traffic.

In the case of SatinMoon.com, it's neither I wouldn't think the name has much re-sale value other than to your mom. The name isn't parked, so no PPC traffic or revenue. ?????????????

EXACTLY! I appreciate your offer for help, this guy is quite odd! My Dad checks it every so often, so maybe one day we'll have it again.

Thank you all for not taking my post in the wrong way. Nothing against anyone who has several domains.(except for this one fellow - James Boyce)

No worries on my end. I do own alot of names, some for personal, some for business opportunities. I'm in the same situation that you are, I NEED a name and the owner in Puerto Rico won't return emails or phone calls. He doesn't have a website up nor is he parking it. Just holding onto it for no reason (that I know of).

Poor us! I've been trying to figure out how to get my little paws on ArtDeck.com (rather than THEartdeck.com which I have now) for some time. Owned by a Korean company who (surprise surprise) doesn't return emails and hasn't done anything with the name. Bah!

doesn't that piss you off?
look at what the loser at
www.mondolounge.com did... it was just parked for a year after numerous emails of trying to buy it off of him - he finally returns one email and then never again - then he puts up that dumb page.

does anyone use godaddy anymore?

Don't know what MondoLounge has to do with PolyOrb?????????????????

Throw a $$$ figure at him and see if he budges... or just sit tight for a month or so to see if he renews. It was originally registered for 2yrs, and Expires Feb 05, so he's getting renewal notices now from Register.com. If he does miss the renewal, Register.com sticks it to ya during the Redemption period to the tune of $300-$400 to get it back.

I went to a trade show in 1997, one of my new vendors was going nuts over my store name, thought it was the "best name ever" He asked if I was planning on going online as I had a catalog mail order service at the time. I told him I was in the process, he then asked if I'd secured the domain name yet (www.stufforama.com), I told him my friend was working on it but I didn't know. By the next day he had purchased my name and posted this web site:

http://web.archive.org/web/20000308052457/http://www.stufforama.com/

He then told me that if I wanted the domain he would "negociate" with me. I registered under my literal spelling of the store, http://www.stuff-o-rama.com and told him "no thanks." I stopped ordering from the guy too 'cause the whole thing just creeped me out. I kept checking back to see what was going on with the site, he never did anything to it. One day I checked it and it came back "unknown" so I grabbed it! So now I have both names. I didn't bother with the .biz, .net, etc. domains...

Side note: The "Wayback Machine" is a cool internet time waster for those who haven't stumbled across it yet. It archives all of the web sites ever posted. You can check it out at http://www.archive.org
