As you may know the .de TLD is the biggest ccTLD and the second biggest TLD overall. Currently backorder is not possible for .de Domains because there is no expiration date for them and if you delete a .de Domain it is available for registration seconds later. There is no indication that a domain will be deleted soon and there are no droplists. All this makes it very hard to get a good Deleted .de Domain, but change is on the Horizon.
DENIC (Registry for .de Domains) announced the introduction of a 7 Day Redemption Grace Period for .de Domains at the end of the year. We will finally have a indication that a domain will be deleted soon and that will result in the possibility of backorder for .de Domains. This is good news, because it will open up the .de market for Domainers all over the world. If you want to invest in ccTLDs you can now participate in drop catching for the best ccTLD.
ExpiredDomains.net will of course feature Expired .de Domains and make them accessible for you as soon as possible.
