Through Google, I came across the web site of Alstrasoft at http://www.alstrasoft.com. This review is about AlstraSoft Expired Domains Pro.
Beware, this company ALSTRASOFT is a SCAM / FRAUD. Software they sell does not work.
I was looking for a script to search for expired domains (domains where the owner lets the domain expire without renewal). It's an interesting little business model and the description of the software matched my needs.
After purchasing the software, I found out first of all that all the software does is to download a list of expiring domains from another web site. Well, already this was a disappointment.
However I thought I would still give it a try. After trying it out on three different hosting environments, I did not manage to get the script to work.
I have installed over 100 Wordpress, Joomla, PostNuke, etc. blogs in my life and I know my way around a little. The program doesn't work because it seems to be old code, no longer compatible with PHP5 to the full extent.
After I contacted Alstrasoft to request a fix, they kept me waiting for a month. I then requested a refund as the software was useless and this was ignored. Since then, they occasionally respond back to me saying that they would like to look into it. Never happened (another month has paassed).
If this article can keep you from falling into the trap of purchasing software from Alstrasoft, I would be happy, as it was then worth the time for me to write this review.
The software I purchased and that never worked (apart from describing features in a misleading way)is:
