Re: cant hesitate these days

You have to assess the names you got and decide at what point to stop. Just because a name is registered by someone else does not mean it got value. Domains have to be renewed every year and some people register thinking it will make it big with renewing!

Just look at the number of junk ASCIIs that drop and are registered, you'll be amazed. There are probably 10 million junk asciis that are dropped and then reregistered by drop catchers, only to be dropped the next round and reregistered again.

Recently, i've come across many names out there with .net registered, but the .com is not good enough for me to register!

Yes, for folks still fresh regging, Japan is really one of the most tapped out markets domain-wise and yet the competition in .jp is still fierce.

Re: cant hesitate these days

Well, if it's a fresh reg, you didn't "lose" it.

To lose something implies you had possession of it previously.
