Expired Domains

Hi Everyone,

I found a domain that expired OCT 20th, but it’s still not available to use. If the owner does not renew it, how long after the expiration date will the domain be made available for others?

From personal experience it took me around 2 months for riddance of a no longer desired domain to finally be in a position to submit it to a contest, but it may vary depending on a domain name vendor.

@Vision. Thank you for your response. I always thought it was about a month or 6 wks after expiration before the domain was released. I have come across two domains, one that expired in 2014, and one that expired 4 months ago that are still not available. I can’t figure it out. I was wondering if anyone else had come across that problem as well…
