This happened to me a few weeks ago and is something you should always keep in mind. It was a mistake on my part and something I think we all could learn from.
If you don’t know the process of domain expiration, we break it down in our own way here.
When a domain name is expiring, you are given the chance to put a bid in an auction format and potentially win the domain name for yourself.
This is what I did via a Dynadot expired domain name auction.
I won a domain name for a GREAT price in my opinion. I was very happy with the purchase, so happy that I went on the Namepros forum and revealed what domain name I had just won at auction.
There goes my mistake.
