  • Domain free? Redemptionperiod? Hu?

    Hi there,

    we are interested in a domain which seems to be free. nslookup, all-nettools and samspade.org state that it's free, but the status is set to REDEMPTIONPERIOD (?)
    Expiration date is in late 2005 ...

    What does that mean?

    What can we do to get/acquire that domain?

    Thanks,
    -Tom

    look at the whois info at www.whois.sc

    Usualy the current registrar will "renew" the domain for an extra year while they wait for the domain to be deleted... this gives the previous domain "owner" the chance to renew his domain. (some registrar charge 100-200$ for a domain to be renewed by the owner while on the REDEMPTIONPERIOD)

    Heres a good image of how the delete cycle works :

    That will give you an idea on when the domain should be available for you to register.

    Good Luck.

      First the domain is placed in the REDEMPTIONPERIOD status for 45 to 60 days, then it will be changed to PENDING-RELEASE which normally is for 6 to 90 days depending on the registrar.
