I'm interested in a .com register in 2003 with an expiration date in 2007, but alway active. The domain is register with [register.com...] and just have a generic reseller page on it. No valuable information at all.

What wrong with this? Unpaid domain must be release or this registrar use bad business practice over the internet?

In some strange/rare situations it becomes necessary to "force a WhoIs registration update".

I'm not certain how it happens but I've seen it happen.

Somehow the registration system "records" that a change has taken place but the central registry's public record does not show the update.

Sometimes you may get a different view of the WhoIs data by checking it through the WhoIs search utility of the host registrar, i.e., Register.com versus checking the WhoIs data through any other service.

There may be another explanation in this case, so I welcome the input of anyone with greater/insider insight.

Extenuating Circumstances

I somewhat remember that a domain name can be freezed under certain situation, which includes not updating, transfering, or paying renewal fees until the situation is resolved. I found this page at ICANN. I know this is only a proposal, however it may have been enacted.

[icann.org...]

Webwork's a lawyer perhaps he can understand this legal jargon, I know I can't :)
