    What you are talking about is domain backordering, and GoDaddy are among the domain registrars that provide the service you require. However you should be made aware that you will never just get a domain upon its expiration as there is a legal grace period set in by ICANN of 30 days which allows the origional owner to re-register the domain if they fell behind on billing. You can pick up the domain only after this point (which the backorder systems will do so).

    Or atleast try to do for you. SOme are better than others and there's no guarantee.

    I don't think there are many domains out there that are dropping and good enough to spend the money up front on.

    Be aware you will not be alone in this race. I suppose dosen of other domainers will race for that domain name as well
