One of my domains expired yesterday (12/31/2009). It was at Register.com and I had it from 2007. It got renewed by accident in 2008, and I ended up paying close to $40 for a domain . I found out about this when I got my credit card statement a month later.
I left the domain there till yesterday, and moved it over to GoDaddy today, because I did not want to pay $35 for a .com renewal.
The domain is currently pending transfer, and I contacted Register.com and they said the domain might go into auctions at anytime.
Does anyone know, how long after expiration the domain goes into auctions?
I really don't want this domain to get away.
I could not transfer the domain before 12/31/2009 because it was part of a bundle.
