I met a guy today, found how he had a website at one time, made the pitch to do Local SEO and he said his "site was down". So I went home, and just checked his domain and it's expired since 06 Sep 12, but the status still shows as "Redemption". Whois says the registrar is TuCows, but their site does not give any information on the domain at all. What's the true status of this domain? is there any hope of recovery? I don't want to post the URL in public. It's not a high-dollar URL, but it was the guy's business site and it has some age and is worth keeping if possible. PM if you think giving you the URL will help. Thanks.
