    GoDaddy and expired domains

    Hey guys, I have a quick question: How long after a domain with GoDaddy expires, will it become available for the public to purchase? When I visit the site, it says "NOTICE: This domain name expired on 11/02/2009 and is pending renewal or deletion".

    How long will I be waiting?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure I catch what you mean. Is a month sooner than the usual waiting period?

    If I e-mail them can I get it sooner or something? This domain is actually that of a business partner; we've had it for two years, but he has gone missing recently, and I couldn't get a hold of him - and he didn't renew it. I wish I had it in my name instead of his so that I could keep it going.

    I am losing dozens of e-mails by the hour through this domain - it is my main business e-mail address.

    Any tips to get it ASAP?

    Can't you (or your friend) log into Godaddy and delete the domain? Once it's deleted, you can register it again I guess.

    Otherwise you'll have to wait the pending removal time, that's about 30 days or 60 days I guess

    Should be something near 65 days + 7 days at TDnam considering no1 grabs the name before you do.

    GoDaddy expiring domains are sold on TDNAM. You should buy the domain instead of hoping it will get dropped.

    What about backordering it? I think that would be appropriate since he can't access the GoDaddy acount.

    GoDaddy backorders are a waste of time.

    Well I checked here: auctions.godaddy.com - but it's not listed. I'm sure I'm lost.

    I guess it also won't appear until after 60 days?

    And what's this about TDNAM? tdnam.com redirects to auctions.godaddy.com. *shrug*

    Tdnam is Godaddy's auction house, "all" Godaddy domains that drop go into there for sale.
