There is one domain I've been waiting for since August. The domain itself expired at the end of august, and was left at renewal grace period until October 4th. It has been close to 2 weeks since the grace period was over, but the domain is still unavailable for me to grab.

It says that the status of the domain is 'redemption period'.

Does this mean someone is redeeming the domain? Or is the original owner getting it? Or it's just an extended grace period?

Is there a way to grab it right now because it is supposed to be expired and released to public already?


Domain Name: *********.COM
Registrar: DIRECT INFORMATION PVT. LTD., DBA DIRECTI.COM

I think the average is 45-60 days after expiration date listed in WHOIS.

It varies. You can get a domain-name reservation service for a fairly reasonable price. I had to check on pictars.com everyday for 3 months (expired oct 13, became available Jan 14).

What's even more weird is..
If I check for the domain name status from http://www.whois.net/, it says that the domain name is now available.
However, when I try to register for the domain name in question through NameCheap, the domain is always taken and as such I can't register for it.

But yah, I've also been checking on that once every few days. Not really something I must get, but it's something that I'd like to get (the domain name)

Edit:
Just checked it via GoDaddy a while back.
Apparently, some domain squatter just snatched the domain ever since November 10th.

Blah, how was it not available when I checked back then? -(

Oh well, no loss for me since it's not really something I really really have to get.

Different registrars will have different results, I noticed. Dotster wasn't having one available, but GoDaddy did, so now both my domains are through Godaddy.
