Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
i am trying to get a domain for my client, i did a whois to find out the following information:
Registrar: REGISTERFLY.COM, INC.
Whois Server: whois.registerfly.com
Referral URL: [registerfly.com...]
Name Server: DNS1.EXPIREFLY.COM
Name Server: DNS2.EXPIREFLY.COM
Updated Date: 12-mar-2007
Creation Date: 01-feb-2006
Expiration Date: 01-feb-2007
does anybody know how and when this domain will be available. I read that once a domain fall into the "PendginDelete" status, it should ebcome automatically available, even the onwer will have to bid on it to get it back. Is that true?
is there a way for me to get it? I can't even contact the owner as it does not show the info on the whois result page.
thanks for th efeed back and great info on this thread

I would be cautious about trying to pick up expired registerfly domains. It may well be an innocent customer who got caught-up in the mess, and wasn't able to renew. You could ultimately have the domain taken from you, and in any case vultures swooping down on these domains just makes a bad situation worse.
But to answer your question, I believe that expiration of registerfly domains is currently blocked at the registry level at the request of ICANN. So, no, there's no way you can get it.
Out of curiosity, is that the biggest "mess" in the registrar history?
Do we have any clues how long this will last? I keep on reading about it but i can't find any concrete solution.
I won't say the name but the domain i am trying to get for my client is 99.999999% taken by a cyber-squatter. The name target so much one country and one industry and my client and i already did some research about competition and we know nobody else is trying to make such business.
I know that we can fight and get a name from a cyber-squatter legally but i think this will be different since the registrar is not answering to anybody anymore.
And if the owner is just letting this situation going for ever. How will i get it back.
At one point in time, this name has to be release, no? what happen if nobody renew it and RegisterFLy close completely business? won't they try to sell their client list or something?
it's very confusing!
Things seems to move on or it seems to me, one domain that i was after has now the status of "expired" where it was "pending-delete" before. but the strange thing is that this is showing only on registerfly look up and not in any other whois lookup.
anybody knows why? also what do you think about company like [snapnames.com...] where you can place bid and follow soon to be expire domains.
or is there another solution to make sure to get a domain as soon as it expires and get notified
thanks for the info
He showed up.
He's being fined $5000 per day until he complies.
It looks like RegisterFly domains will be transferred to GoDaddy, and the mess will be unwound over there. According to ICANN, most of the data has already been transferred. A public announcement should come from GoDaddy any day now.
