    .com how long in "quarantine"?

    After a .com domain has expired how long is it in quarantine?

    Name Server: NS1.PENDINGRENEWALDELETION.COM
    Name Server: NS2.PENDINGRENEWALDELETION.COM
    Status: REGISTRAR-LOCK

    If i go to the domain the NSI page says:
    This domain name expired on 05/06/2006 and is pending renewal or deletion.


    When can it be registered?

    It's up to the registrar, and there is no rule of thumb on how long the typical holding period is. I suggest you check with the registrar and ask them directly.

    Just don't tell them which domain you're after. Some more unscrupulous registrars might hold the domain hostage by registering themselves once they know someone wants it.

    Someone at eNom commented in the article above from Mike Davidson that this happens--against ICANN rules but not very well enforced.

    I think GoDaddy holds them for 47 days, then puts them to auction, if they dont sell in auction they go back out to public; correct me if I am wrong.

    I just went through this for a deleted domain I had my eye on. GoDaddy doesn't do auctions, as far as I know (their faq says they do but my personal experience with getting expired domains through them indicates otherwise--so who knows, it might just be that domains backordered through them skip the auction step).

    This is a good article on the subject of domain backordering comparing the various players and how their systems work: http://www.mikeindustries.com/blog/a...xpiring-domain

    This entry from GoDaddy's FAQ about the Redemption Grace Period might be of interest, as well: http://help.godaddy.com/article.php?...08&topic_id=&&
