Can I Register an Expired Domain?

I want to register a domain that you show as expired, but it says domain not available.


Expired domains are retained during the grace period for the previous registrant to renew. During that time, only the previous registrant has access to renew that name.

However, you can place a back order on the domain by utilizing our auction partner, NameJet.

Use either the Pre-Release Auction program or the Pending Delete service in an attempt to get expired domains.

With thousands of expiring domain names from several of the world's Top 10 domain registrars, NameJet always has a fresh selection of exclusive, premium domains. NameJet's Pre-Release names are already located with their partner registrars, so the high bid gets you the name.
