.com Domain Due to Be Deleted Today

Precisely When Should It Be Available?

A name that expired on 4th September and has the following on whois:

If this domain name is not renewed by 14-Oct-2010, it will be permanently deleted.


Am I right calculating 20th November when it should become available?

Is this the same in all countries?

Each area/country has it's own registration authority like Nominet here in the UK, ARIN in North America and APNIC in Asia/Pacific. I was just wondering if they all apply the same rule with regard to expiring domains?

I don't know why however I have 76 days from expiration date in my head!

Insofar as I am aware they all have different rules.

I think I heard a while ago or read somewhere that some registrars such as GoDaddy gives the person a 30 day chance to buy back and that they basically put the domain on hold....maybe ?

Yep, it seems to be a standard 30-45 days and then another 30 days after that before being released making about 75/76 days so long as the registrar releases it...I think.

Never mind, the .net is still available:-) I don't really need it, I was simply going to move a specialist .in site to this .com

I would at least backorder it and see if you can pick up the .com

P Go to whois. Check the expiration date, then 30 days holding period & domain is free, IMO.

It actually varies by up to about 14 days depending upon the registrar, this specific domain became available on 22nd Nov. and was immediately registered by myself.
