What is an Expiring Domain Name?

An expiring domain name is currently registered and NOT renewed by the previous owner.
The domain past the redemption grace period and the whois status is set to “pending delete“.
The domain becomes available (expire) within the next 5days and it is no longer possible to stop this process. The domain will expire.

Exact time when a domain expires

The time when a domain expires depends on the TLD (Top Level Domain):

.com & .net = 1:00-2:15 PM Central Standard Time
.org = 8:30-9:30 AM Central Standard Time
.info = 3:30-4:00 AM Central Standard Time
.biz = 1:30-2:00 AM Central Standard Time
.us = 12:00-12:30 AM Central Standard Time

Please be sure that you place a backorder to get this domain before the domain expires.

Can I Register a Expiring Domain Exactly on the Expiration Date Shown in Whois?

No – And this is a very common misconception.
Once a domain reaches the expiration date without being renewed by the owner it will change to status “expire”.
In the next 1-45 days the owner is able to renew the domain on the registrar – usually for a expensive extra fee.

How can I switch to quarterly / annual payments to save money?

Please contact us if you want to switch your payment plan
