    After the expiration date the domain goes in REGISTRAR-HOLD state for 0-45 days. Then the domain goes in REDEMPTION-GRACE-PERIOD for 30 days and after that in PENDING DELETE state for 5 days.

    So my question is: when the domain is removed from the zone file? in which state? (i m talking about com and net tlds)

    I wrote a script which downloads the zone file and compare it with the yesterday file so i can extract the new and deleted domains.
    I need to make a domain drop list but i cant find any good explanation...

    another thing is that the expiration date for the deleted domains is not the same with the deletion date...
