    So just going through my list of old dropped domains and it got me thinking...

    What domains did you let drop that at some point were picked up and now developed...

    for me...
    Kube.Pro
    MuniBondAdvisor.com
    ... leaving to see more.

    Love the names. AlphaHill is awesomely brandable.

    TopToc is interesting but hard to pronounce.

    HHG... sorry... that must hurt. Looks like a great site.

    Yeah it was dumb of me to drop alpha hill but no one ever buys from me!! Like never. I've never made a sale so I'm essentially just a domain name enthusiast. Tip Toc is a play off of tiptoc but I registered it because it was cute....and obviously someone else though this as well. And hip hop globe, I kind of expected this to become a site...but just not so fast.

    Because 4L.PRO are always popular among endusers...
    When doing my daily WHOIS-research - I saw a lot of endusers on them...
    And tens were even shown/published by me in .PRO thread...
    + I receive inquiries on them...

    Current WHOIS Created: April 15, 1999 (yet the expiration is May 23rd??? How'd that happen -- consolidated renewal??)

    Anyways, Archive.org has screenshots for Alibaba prior to 1999. (From 1997)

    If my research is correct, the previous owner connected to the above email is now the chairman of the board of Capital City Fruit. The only domain I could find that he still owns is NationFresh.com

    Just because something is developed it may not be the end of the world, dev is like domains, there are different quality levels, wordpress allows anyone to "create" a site in just moments. I think the real pain is when you hear your old name went for big money!

    whoiesrequest.com only shows drops and changes since 2003. They don't have this data for names dropped/regged between 198X and 2002.

    So, this is an indicator that we need more patience.Why new owner didn't build another domain?Because this domain had value. That's why it's must to not reg over your budget and have under control all the renewals.

    Oh, i find it right now. It was one of my first domains, aidbyair.com
    I was thinking it was ''awkward''. Now its developed...Never again deleted .com (especially), unless it's a real thrash. 10 years renewal for these patient guys who waiting your domain expire. I will renew all my domains until the end of 2017!

    Ouch, social coach is a gem. Reason for drop? On purpose or by accident let it drop?
