NOTICE: This domain name expired on 05/02/2012

6 replies
Really want this domain name, when I go to it today (5/9/12) a GoDaddy page comes up and says:

"NOTICE: This domain name expired on 05/02/2012 and is pending renewal or deletion."

How does this sort of thing work... Meaning the owner forgot to renew it so why isn't it on the open market yet? Will it even come on the open market or will it go to a name catching place or something of the sort?

I'd really like to get this domain name, I just don't understand how it works :confused:

    I'm pretty sure there is a waiting period before it will officially on the market, though I'm not sure how long.

    I think theres a few days afterwards and then it will go into a redemption status. This is what I get when a domain expires a few days after...

    This is a courtesy note to inform you that ####### IS NO LONGER REGISTERED THROUGH BLUEHOST. Your domain appears to have expired and is now in "redemption" status. If you wish to re-claim this domain, you'll need to login and renew it (an additional Redemption Fee will also be charged to re-claim your domain).

    Gene Pimentel is the expert on these things, search for some of his posts on the subject.

    If it is registered at GoDaddy I would start looking at the GD auctions, it might end up there first once GD has the "rights" to sell it.

    It will be pending delete period for a bit longer than a few days. I think at least 60. I've found it very hard to get a domain name that has expired before someone else does. There was one I was watching daily and all of a sudden someone else owned it, so I offered him $200 for it and now it's mine .... ha ha

    After several phases of the reclamation period, starting with the owner able to renew with no penalty to having to pay a substantial amount to reclaim it before officially "Dropping" after about 60 days past the initial expiration date, some registrars truncate the period in order to get a better chance of reselling it.
    There are several "services" with high speed equipment on the watch for the instant a name drops and is available to the general public, if on their watch list thee services will snatch up the name before regular people have a chance to get it. Typically you would pay $60 to reserve a name, assuming no one else bids on it.

    snapnames.com Pool.com Namejet.com are example drop catchers.
