I had been waiting a long time for this domain to expire. The 75 days grace period + 5 days redemption period felt like an eternity. Along the way, I had my doubts about others back ordering the domain through go-daddy. I even tried ordering it myself, but thanks to their requirement of a verified PayPal account, I saved some bucks.
A few days ago, I received an email from a company providing me an opportunity to obtain maxotek.com at a “premium price” before anyone else could, because I am the owner of maxotek.net. It didn’t seem right to me and so I checked the net for others’ experiencing the same. From what I read, it was clear that it was a scam, so I played the waiting game and boy wasn’t I rewarded.
Maybe I’ll use both the domains for different activities. .COM for business and .NET for blogging and other internet services. Only time shall tell.
