If you had a domain name that you have lost, that has recently expired or you are trying to scoop up before anyone else is able to purchase it, and you are afraid that you are going to lose out on the opportunity to get it, please contact me as soon as possible and I might be able to grab it for you!
Have you ever forgot to renew your domain registration, and didn't realize that it was expired until it was too late to get it back? If so, you can certainly understand how frustrating that can be! And on top of that, trying to purchase the domain, once it does become available for purchase again, before somebody else purchases it, can be next to impossible!
Unfortunately, I have seen too many times where the domain was 'caught' by a domain broker, that in essence holds the domain hostage for a large ransom amount. If you're lucky, they'll only be asking for a few hundred dollars (if you can consider that lucky).
If the domain was registered for multiple years prior to its expiration date, or there is a high volume of traffic and value to the domain, the cost will likely be in the tens of thousands (that's $10,000.00 +). When a large corporation loses their domain it could cost millions of dollars!
These Domain Brokers watch for domains that have expired and are in the pendingDelete state. The pendingDelete status tells them that the domain is about to be released and will become available within a few days.
Here's an example of a domain that is for sale, from a domain broker,
that is holding one of my personal friends domains hostage.
It's been this way for a few years now, and it wasn't a big company.
So how do you know if a domain is "pending renewal deletion"?
You can use this service to check the Status:
Note that, the Status of the domain registration should be "pendingDelete"
(as shown in the screenshot above)
*I will not hold the domain hostage(available in writing)
*There would be a 60 day waiting period before it can be transferred directly to you(per ICANN Rules)
*This would require a small, nonrefundable, fee
I should also note, that if I successfully purchase the domain for you we can certainly get it pointed in the right direction, so the domain can be used by you, until it can be transferred directly to you.
You might ask;
Well Jeff, why are you doing this for people?
It's simple! I do not like to see ANYONE being taken advantage of.
I enjoy helping people and businesses who are in need, immensely!
Jeff, how are you able to do this?
I have a little secret, that I am not at liberty to share with you. Sorry!
If you have any questions, or you would like to get started, please contact me today!
