    I believe a site can be up for auction on godaddy while the owner still has time to register it. They're allowed 30 days to re-register for an additional fee, something like $70 for a year. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if they do re-register, then you don't receive it.

    You're right except that the fee is $80. I just had to pay a few of those as I spaced off some renewals by not checking and updating my registered email address for one of my GD accounts. :(

    It probably depends on the industry. I was watching some mortgage- / real estate-related domains because of the downturn in those areas. None of about a dozen were renewed during the grace period.
