How To Get Personal Information Off Expired Domain?

 9:42 pm on Oct 12, 2006 (gmt 0)

I let a domain expire, assuming that any new owner would be required to register it under their name. Unfortunately Whois still shows my information for that domain.

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me how to get my information off of that domain?

Thank you!

Your information will be removed from the whois database when the domain is in the pending-delete or is deleted from the registry.

When a domain name reaches its expiration date, it usually gets into redemption period for about 30 days. After this 30 days, it will get into the pending-delete state in the registry for about five days. So, for this 30+5 days, your information will still be shown in the whois database. When this time is up, the registry will delete this domain and it will then be available to anyone who wants to register the domain at any registrar.

While that domain name's still expired and not yet deleted, read your registrar's fine prints. If they say they'll keep your name on for as long as it's expired and not deleted, then there's nothing you can do short of threatening them with suit.

Thank you both _very_ much for the info. I really appreciate it!

Your information will eb completly removed once your domain name expire.

Your information will eb completly removed once your domain name expire.

Unfortunately one registrar doesn't do that until they finally delete the domain name record, which is why I answered earlier to read their fine prints.
