    Hey there, I was just curios does anyone know how can I buy a domain which is expiring at 8/13/2018 (in the next 10 days)?
    I have found a website with amazing TF CF and the website is down at moment but as I have mentioned above it has some great backlink history :)

    When you open the website it looks like this:
    http://prntscr.com/ke17ic

    If anyone knows how can I buy this domain before or after expiring I will be really grateful :D

    [email protected] - I found this mail address in footer of this website. May be you can contact this.

    Also, I am pretty not sure someone will sell this site which has amazing backlink history.

    This domain is parked. This means that they are displaying these ads without hosting with a parking company for a cut of the ad profit. Luckily for you, the person is using the domain in the worst way possible. He will probably drop it because he isn't getting enough traffic.

    You can backorder it with many different websites. Google backordering. It's quite a competitive thing going on.

    Mm.. you will still have to wait some time (>60days). After the domain expires, there are a few stages before it becomes publicly available to grab. Depending on the registrar it sits with, it could even be automatically auctioned off before it is even available for public sale again.

    Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.namesilo.com
    Registrar URL: http://www.namesilo.com
    Registry Expiry Date: 2018-08-13T **://:01Z (i have blured the time)
    Registrar: NameSilo, LLC

    i can see the registry expiry date but i was not sure what should be my next stem acquiring this domain ...well 79$ for back ordering is not a big thing for me for that particular domain since i guess its worth it :D

    Yep and I think they are quite fast to auction it off too? At least faster than the bigger registrars.

    Some users may list their domain for sale on the marketplace manually.

    If you are the only one backordering the domain then it goes to you automatically. If you are not, then you have to bid with other people in an auction. I'd recommend dropcatch or namejet over snapnames; I think dropcatch is the fastest one these days (only if your website catches the domain will you be able to bid! If another website catches it, you're out).

    Alternatively, you can hope no one will bid on it and just wait until it goes through all the phases of expiry then register it anew once it's considered deleted.
