Translated from here:

如果我想要的已经被人拍了,我怎么才能得到,重新拍卖拍吗?前期会不会有人很低的价格拍了很多?

Q1: If someone comes later and finds the domain he want was auctioned before,
is it possible for him to raise another round of auction for this domain?
Q2: In the initial stage of BitShares DNS, will people just obtain a lot of domains with relatively low price?

=============================

In brief, I think people may be curious about the details of auction for domains.

Once you own the name, it is yours and only goes up to auction if you wish to sell.

I think no auctions should be final for the first 30 to 60 days while the network gets established. 

Buying all of the names to 'squat' is not profitable regardless of the price you got the name at.

Somewhat related question.

Is there a way for domainnames that have been "lost" (because of lost keys, long term unavailability of the owner, etc) to come up for auction again automatically?

* Do domain names expire?
Domains expire after one year of inactivity. This means renewing your domain only costs a standard transaction fee (by sending the domain to yourself or updating its record), a miniscule cost compared to the initial auction.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Hello,

Will DNS-related commands be implemented for BTS DNS?
e.g.  host,  nslookup,  dig,  whois

If so,  I am curious about what information will "whois" provide?

What are you going to use to secure the blockchain?  TaPOS, some POS/POW hybrid,  a single signing authority?  Are you planning on including the websites public PGP key in the blockchain at launch?

I think Bitshares-DNS has the chance of being the most important DAC to the common man.  Imagine truly being sure of who you are speaking with online, in an easy transparent way.
