    Hi all


    There is a domain i want to get a hold on, now when you enter it to the browser you get into a godaddy page that says: "NOTICE: This domain name expired on 02/25/2013 and is pending renewal or deletion."


    but when i search goddady or goddady auctions it's not available there...


    any idea on how can i get a hold on this one?


    thanks

    You have to wait until the 1 month grace period is up. Then it'll be back into the system and you can buy it from there. Otherwise, the owner still has the chance to renew it during this period.

    You've just got to check daily AFAIK, unless anyone else knows a more efficient way. Usually dropped domains stay indexed for a while before they get dropped out so you're good there.

    try moniker or snapnames, you can "backorder" a domain meaning that in case owner will not renew and the domain will drop you will have a chance to get it, or you can auction it out later in competition with others
