Why good domain expire? The reasons vary, mostly because of:
- The recipient mail account is full and not longer checked by anyone
- The recipient mail account doesn’t exist anymore (old employee)
- The email with the renewal information was filtered by the antispam software and not seen
- The business may have folded or have been taken offline
- The credit card information at the registrar is expired
- The agency who was in charge is no longer in business
- The domain isn’t set to renew automatically at the registrar
- The owner or employee simply forgot to renew the domain
Most of those domains – to be fair – are crap and not worth a penny.
But there are plenty of domains which are well linked and established websites which expire by acciedent (reasons above).

The Difference between:
Those are domains which have past the renewal date on the registrar.
Those so called expiring domains are still registered but no service like websites and email is working. The domain is handled by the registrar instead of the owner. They can be renewed for an extra fee within a limited time period. The longer the owner wait the more expensive it might be to renew the domain. This phase usually take 1-45 days.
If a domain is not renewed within those 45 days it starts the Redemption Grace Period and the domain is held for another 30 days in registry.
Finally the domain get the WHOIS status set to “pending delete” and it expire within 5 days.
Expired Domains / Dropped Domains
Expired domains and dropped domains are exactly the same.
A previously registered domain expired in the past and is now free for anyone to register. There is no extra costs just the registration fee like on any other domain name.
Usually when people talk about deleted domains they mean expired domains.
But the be accurate: Those domains are either forced to be manually deleted by the owner (some services like Godaddy allow to delete a domain before it expires).
Also a couple years ago – it was possible to pretest domains for a short period of time and refund them. But this has been changed and is no longer common because of fee which is charged regardless of the refund.
