Hello,

I recently ran a whois on "cali.net" and I found that it expired back in October of 1999! (look it up for yourself)

How come it is still in the database? Can a domain be on hold for so long??

Thanks,

There are no formal rules for when a domain name will drop.

Write to ICANN...

This is just ridiculous, I guess. I really hate NetSol. I mean, how long do we have to wait? 2 years? 5 years? Someone should do something about it.

Yeh this question should obviously be tested in court somehow. It would work well if you had a common law trademark or even better a real one and filed a suit against them claiming they were squatting your name. Think of the possibilities!

When WLS goes live all (Verisign) hoarded names will be dropped during 12 month trial period.

Do you know this for a fact, or are you speculating that they will drop because of the WLS?

My belief is that Verisign will not drop all names, but they will drop those with WLS subscriptions - or they will be sued.

There is still no reason for them to drop any name that's not WLS-listed...
