    Actually, they are not interested in the hits that your website is getting. Reselling it back to you at a profit is what they are after.
    ---> Yes, I know. I only used the word "robbed" because that's exactly what I felt when I received the mail from my new host telling me that my old domain is already taken. I mean, shucks, at first I thought "who would want my whole name as their domain?".

    And yes, upon further investigation, I also found out that old and established TLDs like my [previous, original] domain are being sold in an auction- ranging from USD300 to 5K! So maybe, I'll just wait till next year. Baka hindi na rin nila irenew. Kahit sa U.S. pa ako nagwowork and earning USD, hindi ko pa rin papatusin raket nila. As for now, settle na lang muna ako sa .PH na domain siguro (shucks, bad trip pa dito sa atin, sobrang mahal ng local domain natin!).

    and style namin dito sa office is inaassume na namin yung mga pwedeng kuning domain related to the company, tapos nag susubscribe na kami for three years. so within three years, walang makakakuha ng domain na yun dahil naka reserve sa amin. whether we use it or not, it is still our company's right to use it as long as it is reserved and subscribed by us. in fact, we ended up nga with 12 domains subscribed pero isa lang ang ginagamit. before it expires, we decide here whether to continue reserving that domain, drop some of it, and create/reserve/subscribe to new domains.
    hth.
    Actually, yung original owner ng PLDT.COM (Philippine Lap Dance Troupe... hehehe!) eh nauna yata talaga by 1 or 2 years sa PLDT Co. sa pagpaparegister nung domain. Ngayon, siguro napagkasunduan na nila sa price kasi nare-redirect na sa PLDT.COM.PH eh. IMO, napakaslim ng chance na makalimutang iparenew ito nung previous owner. Mahina na milyon siguro ang nakuha niya doon.

    Anyways, baka bayaran ko na lang nga din in advance yung pinasubscribe ko na domain ngayon. Medyo mahal kasi (Php1950/year for a .PH domain WTF) so baka sa January ko na mapaextend.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    ph domain ba kinuha sa'yo? kung ph, malamang insider yan bebenta nga sa'yo. 1950 a year? I had our company registered sa dot.ph sa emerald 2 months back. 3500 for 2 years.

    I believe it was Bigberts.com...

    paano nabawi? They bought it back.

    Why did you get the com.ph domain? Why not get a cheaper .com domain?

    Yes this is the best way to handle this if you don't wanna fork out cash to buy your domain name back.

    It also happened to us twice, because we forgot to renew our domain name. I believe godaddy has this auto-renew feature which is pretty usefull and you should use this if you plan to keep your domain name for a long time. I don't know about the local domain name registrars.
