    Post Who owns this .com?

    I used own www.WestTexasForums.com. It was new and growing. We had about 500 members. Things were going great until I ran out of money. I didn't re-reg it and now I do not know how to get it back. Can someone please help me out here?

    I guess I need to:

    1) find out who has it.

    2) figure out how much to get it.

    3) find a very good host at a fair price.

    Thank you in advance, AO.

    Eg
    When will I be able to reg it again? "will be available within 0-5 days" <==Is that how long I have to wait? Am I understanding that right?

    Sorry for all the questions, and thanks for all the help!

    I'm assuming that's what it means...that once they've cleared it in 0-5 days from the 30th of Dec it will then become available to the public...at which time you should be able to secure it again...I would go to any domain registrar and regularly check using their search the availability of that domain name and then grab it quick once it becomes available before someone else does.

    Eg

    Any domain search will do...

    http://www.register.com/retail/produ...+search+domain

    Go to samspade.org and look it up!
    For me, it says 'not found' now. I'd say.. go register.
