    It could be worst, much worst, your account is topped up with funds and you find a great .com domain available, by the time you logged-in it's gone and registrar offers you "the truly global" .co version!! been there

    Borrowing from Tom to pay Dick (registrars:xf.wink:) is never a good way to domaining.

    Guess what?

    This morning, I see sceos.com available for reg. Both .INFO and .ORG taken, both redirecting to the same .DE company. No money on the card ... so few hours later I went to the bank to add some funds. Came back to the computer, to register the name. It was taken ... and it is listed now @Sedo for $ 5,000.

    Please don't remind me that feeling. Is the worst condition, especially if the domain is superb. Latest lost domain: pffff i will not refer it, my heart is breaking....

    Just as an aside - I'm told that to keep a good credit rating you should keep your credit card below 30% of your credit limit.

    Happened to me a couple of months ago. I was surprised. It's so rare. Anyway, I was going to reg this domain...
    RoadHouseHomes(com) and by the time I got out of the shower and got back to my computer, it was gone.

    You can check the whois. The guys last name happened to be RoadHouse. :)
