What happend to the PageRank Column and Filter?
Why can I only export 10,000 Domains? Where can I download the complete domainlist?
The export is limited to 10,000 domains for everyone. This was necessary because some people were heavily abusing the export function with automatic scripts. There is currently no way around it sorry.
If you only need the domain name, you an use the "Download Domain Names as Textfile" link right next to the CSV Export link. This download contains 30.000 domains.
Do you have an API?
What Timezone is used on ExpiredDomains.net?
All times are UTC.
The current time is:
UTC - 02:57 AM (same as GMT)
CET - 03:57 AM (Berlin, Paris = UTC+1)
If you want to know what time this is in your Timezone, you can use the World Clock Meeting Planner.
What happend to the Moz.com values (DA/PA)?
Moz.com changed their Free API Terms. You can now only check 25.000 domains per month. The expired .com domain list alone is bigger than that with around 60.000 domains daily. Of course they offer a payed API, but that is to expensive for me at the moment.
That means I can't get DA/PA for new domains anymore. At the moment you can still use the columns and filters for domains that already have data, but they will probably be remove at a later stage.
When do you update list "xy"? When will the website be updated?
The Whois Creation Date reset after I registered a Deleted Domain. Why?
Deleted Domains do not have a Whois Record anymore, because they are like every "available-never-registered-domain" in that regard. If you register a Deleted Domain, it gets a brand new Whois Record and a new Creation Date. The same applies for Expired Domains that reach the Pending Delete State, even if you Backorder them and they get registered for you. The domain will still be deleted and the Whois Record resets. Basically if a domain reached the Pending Delete State, the Whois Record will be deleted and the Whois Creation Date will be reset!
How can I keep the Whois Creation Date from Expired Domains?
If you want to keep the Whois Creation Date, you have to buy the domain before it drops (reaches pending delete). That is possible for Godaddy Expired Domains and GoDaddy Closeout Domains. These domains get auctioned before they reach pending delete, so if you buy one you can keep the Whois Creation Date.
It is not possible to keep the Whois Creation Date (Birth Year) for Pending Delete Domains and Deleted Domains. When you Backorder or Register a Domain from those lists, you will automatically create a new Whois Record and get a new Creation Date.
I bought domain "xy.z". Your site said it had "value abc" and now it doesn't anymore. Why?
The information on ExpiredDomains.net are gathered when a domain gets added to the site. The data gets refreshed periodically, but it is technically impossible to refresh it for every domain every day, so there is a chance that the values you are seeing have changed. Some values change very rapidly. Backlinks can disappear, Google can remove the domain from its index or some other factor can change.
That is why I encourage everyone to check the information before making a buying decision!
You can click on most values to verify them on the resource website.
Please check values you base your decision on, before you buy or register the domain! A more details explanation on why you should always do that can be found here.
Can you increase the font size of the Domain Listings?
Can you disable/remove the Domain Highlighting when you Search?
Why can I not find any IDN Domains? Where can I get a list of IDN Domains?
Your website says the Domain is available, but I can't register it. Why?
It is technically not possible to check the availability for all domains all the time, so it can happen that the website is showing domains as available that are already registered again. That is why there are links to a number of registrars where you can do a check if the domain is available or not. Also there are two different ways of checking the domain availability that can produce different results. You can read more about how ExpiredDomains.net uses DNS and Whois Checks for domain availability here.
What is the Traffic Number and where does it come from?
My account got closed/deleted. Why?
Here are the reasons why an account would be closed/deleted:
- You asked for it using the contact form in the member area.
- You did not use your account for over a year (signed in once). If that happens, you will get a reminder email that your account will be removed in a month and if you do not use your account in that time, it will be deleted.
- You used some kind of automatic script to crawl the member area and that is considered abuse of service, because the website was build for users and not for bots.
If you think closing your account was a mistake, contact the site admin.
