Purchasing a Domain from a Domain Squatter
As the question states, if a .com domain is squatted by the usual ad site, what are the chances of getting the domain (not buying it from the squatter)? And what should one expect to spend on it? This is for a startup company, is it still possible?
Any past experiences are very welcome.
Also does the standard default ad site make a difference? What if the domain is owned, but no website is setup at the domain? I realize there are other uses, but for those cases a subdomain is usually "enough".
