    Has anyone ever dropped a domain name and months later discovered that someone has acquired the name and developed it?

    Excluding: mini-sites, blogs, landing pages.

    all the time.
    This is actually quite common since there are a lot of people grabbing domains from the drops to create mini-sites, blogs, online shops, etc.

    Just updated. Surely not mini-sites or blogs but businesses.

    That just means someone made the same mistakes you did.

    When I see domains I've let drop picked up by a reseller who slaps a huge price on them, I chuckle.

    Thanks for that I guess???? Lol

    Debtshred I thought was a pretty sweet brandable which is why the ask is at $28k now. Someone grabbed it after I let it drop and never let it expire

    Sometimes the new owner benefits from the mistakes made by the previous owner.

    I make it a point to never check on any domain I drop as I hate to be wrong or make mistakes.

    Ignorance is bliss! If I don't know they are developed, I won't be upset.

    I won't go back to see his fall under the domain name, if they are for my own love, I will always hold, wait until the rich investment do product or business project together with others

    But buying TGOR.com isn't a bad name or a mistake from the new owner.

    Hate to bring up this old dead thread. had to input. I regged TGOR.com back in the day when I use to go to those "fast and furious" car shows called HIN (Hot Import Nights!)

    TGOR.com stood for The God of Racing! lol

    what we think of when we were young! lol

    never knew the Chinese were coming! damn!

    I wonder what else TGOR could stand for? lol
