Redemption period


There is domain that I what but itís in the redemption period, how can I make sure to be notified when it becomes available.

Besides checking it everyday is there a software that can monitor it for me?
Is there a company or service that can monitor or register it for me.

The domain as not much value itís just something that I would like to get so Iím looking for something with a reasonable price range.

Thanks

Never heard of services like Snapnames.com, Pool.com? You can never beat them at acquiring expired domains.

Thanks for the reply guys. The domain is with GoDaddy but I can't find it in any auctions. It's status is now PENDING DELETE

Thanks

PENDING DELETE status means it's definitely going to drop within the next 5 days. You'd think the a GoDaddy backorder at this point would definitely capture the domain, but that ain't necessarily so. Your best bet would be to place drop orders for it at SnapNames and Pool. It's $60 each but you only pay if you win the ensuring private auction (if other people have also ordered it), or if you win outright because nobody else ordered the domain. It's a bit of a gamble placing a GoDaddy $18.95 cash backorder on it. Chances are slim, but if you're a gambling man, it may be worth it.

Redemption Period and Pending Delete are actually sub-statuses of the Pending Delete status.

If the domain is Pending Delete/Pending Delete the current registrar is no longer able to capture the domain. Domains listed as Redemption Period are actually Pending Delete/Redemption Period while domains listed as Pending Delete are really Pending Delete/Pending Delete.

Stu2's advice is on the money: Place a backorder at SnapNames and/or Pool.

The domain will be dropped 6 days after it changed to pending delete. If you really want it, then backorder it at Snapnames, Pool, and Godaddy. I've done that with a few domains and even Godaddy got one of them.

Thanks for all the advices.
I don’t think I need to spend the $60 for back ordering as it’s not a very important domain name.
But I would like to make sure that I’m going to get it. Which of the registrars will it becomes available first, godady, namecheap, 1and1?

It'll most probably be picked up by SnapNames or Pool. To make sure you are going to get it, you will need to backorder at both of those dropcatchers. If it's not picked up by them, then it will most likely be picked up by a domain taster. When they finish with it, it could easily be picked up by another taster. This could go on for months until they decide they don't want it. The GoDaddy backorder would then be your best option, but the $18.95 is non-refundable, but you can use it for another backorder.
