However, when I try to register it through GoDaddy.com, it says that KRTOWN.COM is already taken.

I don't get it.
the domain name should have been expired over a month ago, but how is it that I can't register it?
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Guelila

there is always a time after the domain expires when the old owner get the chance to register it again. I don't remember how long this time is but I think it depends on the TLD.
Guelila
hmm i see..
in the case of a .com domain, does anyone know how long this period is?

Takes around 75 days after the expiry date for the domain to drop

Well, This is a good information to know. But if a domain is parked, can we wait for it to claim after some time?
Guelila
75 days??
geez thats a long time i have to wait, since the domain expired on the 11th of June..
around a month more i guess..

Is there any way to speed up the process?
