    Hello Mates,


    I am searching around over it but can't find the answer to this. I want to purchase an expired domain from Godaddy.com which was previously registered in 2004. And now if we check its status over Godaddy.com, it says

    NOTICE: This domain name expired on 11/03/2011 and is pending renewal or deletion.

    My question is that if I purchase this domain today, will the age of the domain will be counted from 2004 or it will be from the day I make purchase?


    Thanks :)

    Well it should still be owned by the owner, and they are in a grace period to renew it, so I don't think you could even get it right now?

    And I'm pretty sure you won't get the age when you renew, because you won't be able to get it until it's completely expired. Unless you contact the owner and work out a deal.

    You must understand that even though a domain has expired there is still a one month window during which it is being credited to the original owner..so he could renew.

    After this period is over it will most likely be snatched by the domain aftermarkets (especially if the domain is good or if it has high PR).

    As a side note, if you manage to register it..then yes, the age will be counted as 2004.
