For the purposes of Domize, expired domains are domain names that have been dropped from zone files in the last 2 weeks. Domize updates this list every 24 hours, removing domain names that have been renewed in that time as well as adding newly dropped names. Expired domain names will be shown as grey links in your search results.
Expired domains can be in any of 3 states:
Available - the domain has not been renewed and has been released
Just renewed - the domain has finally been renewed by the owner in the last 24 hours
Pending - the domain name is still in a state of pending deletion. If you're interested in acquiring the domain name you should investigate back-ordering the name or using a specialist domain dropping service
To find out exactly which state the domain is in you will need to click it. This will take you through to your configured registrar to check on the domain name.
