    Wow, so it could take up to 80 days to expire?

    Are there any sites that monitor this and will email when it does expire?

    Just do a search here on backorders, pool, snapnames and you will find probably all the answers you would ever want.

    BTW, I have been watching some domains that expired with Dotster almost a year ago and they still haven't been released.

    I believe that domain name registrars are purposely holding on to the better domain names instead of just giving them away.

    They recognize the gold mines they are sitting on whether they use them or not

    sometimes registrar renew domains and wait for the owner to come and if he doesn't they take it for them.

    You can backorder the domain with pool.com or snapnames.com. There is also godaddy, but they seem to have very little success at backordering.

    If you have a multiple domain names that you want to monitor over this 80 day process, try namestead.com. Namestead will email you when the domain name status changes. It is pricey though, but worth it for me as I have a lot of domain names to track.
