Network Solutions is indeed evil. Several years ago, before I knew anything, I decided I wanted to transfer my domain away from netsol. A buddy of mine gave me bad advice. "Just backorder it with godaddy," he said, as the domain was about to expire. So I backordered it and let it expire. The next thing I knew, some shady company had snatched it right up and charged me $150 to get it back. :( Later I did some research and discovered that shady domain snatcher was actually some subsidiary of Network Solutions. I've hated them ever since. Needless to say, I no longer have any domains registered there and I learned how to do proper domain transfers.

my friend just stumbled on their site last March 2. and got her domain under their 'hostage' just minutes after then, and she had to keep a guard on the domain since that day. I will ask her again whether her chosen domain has been released or not, for this is already the fifth day and they claimed it was up to 4 days. we will see ...

No, not moving again. The first time was too much of a pain!

Hmmm... never had a problem yet with NetSol. Congrats on getting your desired domain name, though. You aren't moving again are you? ;)

Thank you for the explanation MH. I was probably harsh to blame this on NetSol, but I hadn't seen it before. I will say I've had quite bad experiences with them though. Thanks for clearing that up!

Hi David, The "pending deletion" period for a domain name is governed by ICANN and the gTLD Registries (for .COM and .NET domains, that would be Verisign), not by Registrars like Network Solutions. For a diagram of the lifecycle of an Internet domain name, see: http://www.icann.org/registrars/gtld-lifecycle.htm -MH
