GoDaddy: "Well even if it expires, we give them 43 additional days to renew it."
Me: "So can I buy it now?"
GoDaddy: "No, you will have to wait until 43 days are up. Then it will revert back into unregistered domain territory. But that will take anywhere from 1-30 days."
Me: "So I have to wait until Day 43, then, I have to wait between 1 and 30 days after that?"
Me: "So I basically I have to keep checking and get lucky?"
Me: "Can I use your Domain Buy service?"
GoDaddy: "No, that's only for domains that haven't expired yet."
