What is an expired domain?

An expired domain is a domain that has not been renewed before the end of its contract. This may be because a payment method did not go through, the domain was deleted, or the owner forgot about it. They are available for re-registration after about 30-90 days.

Frequently asked questions

Can I buy an expired domain?

Yes, but it must be dormant for 30-40 days. When you purchase an expired domain, it will be yours for 1-10 years depending on the terms. You can opt for auto-renewal to avoid expiration surprises.

How long do you have to renew a domain after it expires?

You have 30-40 days to renew an expired domain, depending on the terms of your registrar. After that, it will go to auction, where you can also try to purchase it, but it will sell to the highest bidder.

Do expired domains still work?

No. Expired domains only work when you renew or re-register them. When you purchase an expired domain, it maintains any inbound links accumulated over the time it was live. Some people buy expired domains from similar businesses to help with their SEO and Google rankings.
