What does this Domain Status mean (for DotRegistrar)?
I am trying to acquire some domainname, and when you look at the whois records, you see the text below and confused by it. What exactly does this mean? Isn't status supposed to be PENDING_DELETE if it is to be deleted? And, if it is going to be deleted, how long do you think it will take to get deleted?
Thanks for the explanation XT22, but I was asking whether this is in PENDING_DELETE or not? Because, PENDING_DELETE is specified in the "Registrant Name" field as opposed to the STATUS field, which is INACTIVE instead of PENDING_DELETE.
My guess is (1) as well, but I am trying to understand what it exactly means, and/or I should back order it? Because DotRegistrar has a pay ahead policy Basically you need to buy enough credits to cover backorder, and if you can not get the domain, they don't give this money back to you, and it stays in your account till it expires.
