Hi everyone. I really need information on an expiring domain I am looking to backorder. I wanted to know why it has two expiration dates and what does it mean? Please help. Also wanted to know how long I will have to wait until the domain comes available on namejet, pool, or scapnames? I backordered with all three including GoDaddy but I heard about how unreliable GoDaddy is for domain backorders How long is the wait until the domain comes available on one of the auction sites? I heard 30 day and 40 days but I am not exactly sure and it's already been 30 days since the the domain expired assuming it really did expire. Also when I visit the URL it prompts the owner of the domain to renew.
Below is the WHOIS information for the expired domain but it has two expiration dates.

Record last updated on 29-Sep-2013.
Record expires on 26-Sep-2013.

After the 40 day grace period the domain name is deleted from our registration database. The domain registry will provide an additional 30-day redemption period. During the redemption period the domain owner can have their domain name redeemed by paying a $175.00 redemption fee in addition to the cost of a one year service renewal.
During redemption, you may notice the domain's expiration date in WHOIS lookups has moved ahead one year in the registry database. This is a temporary auto renewal at the registry.
