When Does an Expired Domain Name Become Available

In order to know exactly when an expiring domain name will become available for re-registration by a new owner, you must understand the Status of a domain as listed in the whois database.

Here is the URL of the whois lookup provided by Network Solutions: http://www.networksolutions.com/en_US/whois/index.jhtml.

When observing the results of a whois lookup, you will see a record similar in format to the one below:

Domain Name: YAHOO.COM
Registrar: ALLDOMAINS.COM INC.
Whois Server: whois.alldomains.com
Referral URL: http://www.alldomains.com
Name Server: NS1.YAHOO.COM
Name Server: NS5.YAHOO.COM
Name Server: NS2.YAHOO.COM
Name Server: NS3.YAHOO.COM
Name Server: NS4.YAHOO.COM
Status: REGISTRAR-LOCK
Updated Date: 20-oct-2003
Creation Date: 18-jan-1995
Expiration Date: 19-jan-2012

There is a line item in the lookup data labeled Status. In the case of this domain, the status is listed as REGISTRAR-LOCK. 

Listed below are the various states that can appear in this field, and what they mean - I put a star by the 2 states that you should look for if you're interested in expiring domains. This data is taken directly from a document entitled, RFC 2832 - NSI Registry Registrar Protocol, May 2000 which is located at the following URL: http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc2832.txt?number=2832 and from General Counsel's Briefing Regarding Proposed Revisions to .com and .net Registry Agreements to Reflect Services Introduced 25 January 2003 located here: http://www.icann.org/minutes/report-vgrs-rgp-consolidate-23feb03.htm.
