I Can't Register the Expired Domain Name

Although a Domain Name may have already expired, it may not be immediately available for registration to the general public. This is because most registrars, like Crazy Domains, allow a grace period for registrants to renew Expired Domain Names.

Depending on the type of the Domain Name, the registry may hold the Domain Name in an Expired or Redemption Period status for several months. The Redemption Period can last up to 30 days, and, during this time, the current registrant can still renew the Domain Name and still secure its ownership.

If the Domain Name is not timely renewed or restored after expiration, it may be made available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis where you can Backorder the Expired Domain. This means that if and when it is purged from the registry, we will immediately attempt to register and secure it for you.

To monitor the current status of the Domain Name, you may use the WhoIs search tool.
