Buying an Explired URL





Possum
Hi

I want to but an expired URL. Even though is has expired it is not available yet. I think there is 90 day grace or something like that.

Is there a way to buy it anyway. I don't mind the present people getting the URL again. But I want to buy it so another party doesn't.

thank you..

The only way I can think of is contacting the current registrar holder (Godaddy for example) and trying to get a deal, if not be quick when it's available.

Here is a five-year old post describing the "back room" antics that go on over expired domains. This should give you a general idea, but if the domain is one you want badly, you will want to do some research on the current situation.
