    I did a website for a guy last year. There was some miscommunication and someone else grabbed the registry. This dude's got yellow pages and everything else pointed to the site and now!?!?! Anyone can figure out how i can at least get in contact with the new owner?? The site is Maybe I can make him an offer. I looked at whois and it told me nothing. Thanks.

    When I clicked the "Why Am I Seeing This" it opened up my email and the title of the email that was automatically inserted said:
    "Inquiring about the domain '', with status: Expired"

    That's a huge pain when that happens... It's never worth it to put off renewing a domain. If you forget, then you are in for the headache of your life trying to get it back. :(

    Spence did you sort it out? I have you as the owner (at least I'm pretty sure it's you) as owner over at internic.

    I'm still working on this. My web host said that I still own it. Thanks a million for all of your help. I will be back in touch.

    Got It!! Thank God!!

    Ok, someone explain this one to me. When the domain expired, it got automaticly transfered to this search the web page. How does that work? Who did the foward on the name? Was it registerfly?? Sorry for such dumb questions, I'm still learning this web stuff.

    Dude, I was freaking out about this.
    I realized that I advertised on a public board that my name had expired when it actually hadn't. I was gone all day and was thinking, what if someone reads the board, steals my address and holds me randsom? Jeezz, my head hurts. Tomorrow, I'll load the guys site.
