Expired Domains

People often have the question of when they can pick up a domain when it is expired. The answer to that is always different. It really depends on the registrar the domain is currently registered with. Some registrars hold the domain an additional 30 days after it expires and then lets it go. Others hold it for 40 days and then lets it go. It really is different and unpredictable.

But imagine it’s a great domain and the registrar wants it. Guess what? You will not see that domain become available because the registrar will keep the domain for itself and sell it in their marketplace for an excess price or whatever they think is right. They’ll hold off domains that they think is worth around $100 or so. Some are worth more and if you are the one that will let a domain expire, don’t make a mistake by letting a great domain go.
