    Dropping Date + Backorder

    When will a domain name be dropped if the expiry date is 2005-03-19?
    Also, what to use to backorder the domain name?

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    http://www.freewho.com/checker/ will give you a very close drop date. Sometimes it is off.

    If you really want it I would use Pool, Clubdrop, Snapnames, and yes even GD.

    If it is a NetSol domain you know that SnapNames has a deal with them concerning drops.

    If you want to take a chance I think ClubDrop is the best deal going.

    On freewho I see this:
    Status: REGISTRAR-HOLD
    Updated Date: 20-mar-2005
    Creation Date: 19-mar-2003
    Expiration Date: 19-mar-2006

    And on dnsstuff I see this:
    Record expires on 03-19-2005
    Record created on 03-19-2003

    Which one is true? In my understanding, domain expired on 03-19-2005, why do I see 19-mar-2006 on freewho?

    Also, I can not find the drop date on freewho. In my understanding drop date an expiry date are not the same.

    Any comment?

    yeah, some registrars play with expired domains and hold them for a long time before drpping them into the cycle. I have been watching some Registrar.com domains that have been pending delete for 17 months now.

    I would say keep an eye on it and wait for the status to change.
