Got a question... How do I install a script in 123 reg hosting service? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... Hello all,.

I have a name that I have backordered with GoDaddy..

The name is a good one, IMO..

The name expired on 2-11-07 and it is still in the redemption period. I called 123 reg and they said that the redemption periods vary between registrars..

So how long can they, legaly, hold on to a name after it has expired??.

It has been 66 days since it expired, why is it still in the redemption period?.

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably can answer it..

Actully, there are 40 days grace renew period, and 30 redemption period, 5 pending deletion period..

Registrar give different grace renew period, Cnobin is 35 days, then there are anthor 35 grace period..

Stub post.

Omains can be held in redemption for up to a year.

That's untrue, registry will refund when HostGator get into pending deletion period..

If you believe there are no one keep any eyes to your domain, you can re-register it after drops for general registration...

I think some regitrars make there own rules...


I recently let 2 names expire and drop:.

HostGator A:.

Expired on 2-27-07, already with a new owner, according to the WhoIs..

HostGator B:.

Expired on 2-14-07, still listed as being in the redemption period, accourding to the WhoIs..

And again..I'll give the names so you can see the difference in DN quality..

HostGator C.

: Expired on 2-14-07, already with a new owner.....

HostGator D.

: Expired on 2-11-07, still in the redemption period..

All names with GoDaddy..

Why are these redemption periods not consistant?.

Furthermore. A few of my HostGator name related names that expired on 3-23-07, now show in the WhoIs that they do not expire until 3-23-08 with a Registrar Status of:.


The WhoIs also still shows my registrant info, although 123 reg had removed the name from my account over 2 weeks ago. WTF?.

I think I may call them tomorrow and ask to redeem HostGator B, if they say I can then I will ask to redeem HostGator A. I'm sure they will say it's not possible, and I'll ask why one and not the other...

At eNom it's true at least, maybe elsewhere. It only goes into Pending Delete if the Registrar requests a refund...

Well I guess Godady only gives a 19 day grace period. (for the names they like).

Thats how long from the point my name expired to when they listed it for sale on TDNAM..

Then it gets 10 days worth of bidding...

So 29 days after (a good name) reg'd with 123 reg expires it could be in somebody elses hands....

I'm not complaining because I lost good names or anything, I just don't think this seem right/ethical....

Other names that they did not like, that expired long ago, are still in a redemption period... again... WTF!..

Grace Period at 123 reg is 12 days. They sometimes add a few days grace period to the grace period..

Comment #6

I'm losing a valuable HostGator in godaddy. It expired on the fifth of this month(current date: 30th) and they have already deleted the name from my account. 123 reg never send expire alert email to you if they think that's a valuable domain. I'll warn all domainers to avoid 123 reg by all means...

GG. This could be informational for you. I just asked my GD account exec "how long after the HostGator is dropped by TDNAM is it before it actually drops at the registrar". His reply was "75-80 days after expiry date". So you have your answer to your original question. Every deadline after expiry seems to have this 5-day leeway.

This variation runs through every deadline, right up to the time they drop the domain. Hence the 75-80 days...
