Does my (dropping) domain worth the backorder?

I didn’t renew and it is dropping today, 28th of August. I bought the domain name in 2006 and this year I felt that it wasn’t worth the renewal fee.

My expired and now dropping domain is on’s HOTLIST. This is supposed to be a list of the best dropping domains of the day. I guess there is a shortage of quality dropping domains as most of the top registrars are auctioning their best expired domains before they drop. But including is a bit of a stretch. The domains and are available to register and also didn’t get much traffic either. Of course I got zero offers to sell it.

So, does my dropping domain worth the $60+ backorder? I say it isn’t worth it. Let’s see if this is caught, by what service and by whom.

Pool’s Hot List from today includes other “hot” domains as well. These 2 caught my eye at first glance:

  • (This is a typo of that would be very easy to be lost in a UDRP complaint)
  • (This is a typo of the U.S. spelling of the word jewelry. This would only get some typo traffic if the correct spelling was developed but it is actually parked at Sedo.)
