My first question is: Is using GoDaddy or Sedo worth the fees they charge for selling a domain?.

My next question is: If the /img/avatar2.jpg doesn't contact the registrar in time, when will the name be deleted?.

The original expiry is set in September...

Your question was: Is using GoDaddy or Sedo worth the fees they charge for selling a domain?.

Ah, that particular name came to mind so I was hoping to get an answer regarding this issue.

Appreciate more input regarding this...

I got a notice threatening to take a HostGator for a Godaddy name that I sold over a year ago. The new owner has left my contact info on it, and Godaddy put the word "none" for parts that were not known.

There were other reports of people getting threatening emails supposedly from Godaddy at the same time (some used their email even though they had privacy). I sent the info to the owner via both contacts that I had for him, got no response and the whois is unchanged. Godaddy did not take the domain.

I suspect that it was a clever phishing attempt, with somebody inside (or formerly inside) Godaddy involved...

Thank you scabies.

It's gonna be a long wait.....

If you take GoDaddy at their word here, it won't go through TDNAM. It will be deleted somewhere around 75-78 days after expiry. Definitely backorder it at GoDaddy in case they put it on TDNAM, but they are hopeless at capturing their own deleting domains. So be prepared to have wasted your money. You should also backorder it at NameJet/SnapNames/Pool before it drops...

I would imagine the HostGator will still go through the TDNAM process - I doubt Godaddy would just allow the HostGator to expire - there still within their rights to auction it off (even if I question those rights).

Thank you guys! I'll monitor the HostGator status and see where it ends up...
