I understand that some domain names are bought to resell for profit. How would I go about buying these? I'm soon to graduate july 2010 and I'm looking to build an online portfolio of my work. Unfortunately the domain name I want isn't available and tapping it into the address bar brings up nothing. I also see that it was created jul 2008 and is soon to expire jul 2010. Since nothing has been put in place for this domain in this time, I'm assuming it was bought for the above reason. Should I wait and see if the owner renews it? Sorry, I don't understand a great deal about domain names, thanks for your time, Derek. edit: also, I'd be open for suggestions for domain name ideas. I tried my full name and that isn't available which is a shame. Doesn't look like I'll be getting my hands on it since it's a legit business by the looks of the website.
