Domain Name Pattern Filter Explained
The pattern filter can be a very powerful tool in finding good domains. It uses regular expressions to find domains that match your specified pattern without you having to try out every possible combination yourself.
How to Backorder Expired Domains
If you find an expired domain name you want, you can place a Backorder for that domain with a Drop Catching or Backorder service. Learn more about how backorder works and where you can backorder domains.
Introduction into the Member Area
This short article gives a quick introduction into the member area.
How the Domain Availability Check works
ExpiredDomains.net uses two different ways to check the availability of a Domain Name. DNS and Whois check. Read about how they are different from each other and how they are used on this website.
Why you should always check Values
The information for Domains on ExpiredDomains.net are gathered when the Domain gets added to a Domain List, but they might change right after. Read about why you should always check Values before making a decision to buy or register a Domain.
What you can find in the Member Area
There are a lot of great features you can only find in the Member Area and I want to use this post to show you what they are, so you can decide if you would benefit from signing up.
Pending Delete Domain Status
After a domain expires, it will pass through a number of states, before it gets deleted. The last state before the deletion is the Pending Delete State. Read more about it here.
New Droplist for Pending Delete .cl Domains
The pending delete list now has a 30 days pending delete list for .cl domains. Note: I build the droplist myself and it is not complete!
Updated the Supported TLDs list
The following TLDs are now fully supported with a deleted list and a droplist (pending delete list). .hn, .ht, .rw, .cr, .gl, .gy, .gs, .om, .qa, .ir, .pe, .com.pe, .tc, .ky, .th, .co.th, .ke, .co.ke, .uz, .kz, .pm, .re, .tf, .wf, .yt, .sx, .gd, .gi, .kg, .mu, .im, .ug, .sb, .tl, .st, .sm, .so, .sn, .pf, .nyc, .cloud, link, .ms, .mk, .af, .bi, .pr, .com.pr, .nf, .nc, .dm, .bo, .ki, .iq, .bj, .am, .as, .ax, .fo, .mg
These only have a deleted list for now: .aw, .bn, .com.bn, .bw
Important! Some of these TLDs are very small. Don't expect to see a lot of expired domains for some of them!
New Wanted Character Whitelist (any/all) Filter
The whitelist filter for wanted characters is now split into three filters. The old whitelist is now named whitelist (only). When used, the domain has to consist only of the defined characters or numbers. No other characters are allowed. The new whitelist (any) filter finds domains that have at least one of the defined characters or numbers. The new whitelist (all) filter finds domains that have all defined characters or numbers at least once.
Whitelist (only):: "01" -> 10001.com or 10000.com (only 1 or 0 allowed)
Whitelist (any):: "01" -> 19999.com or 99990.com (1 or 0 at least once)
Whitelist (all):: "01" -> 10999.com or 19990.com (1 and 0 at least once)
New supported TLD .sk (Slovakia)
You can now find deleted .sk domains as well as a droplist for .sk in the pending delete list.
Colored Enddate in Pending Delete List
The enddate in the pending delete list is now colored. The color indicates how likely it is that the domain will become available at the shown date. It's unfortunately not possible to determine the correct enddate for every TLD.
Green: The enddate is most likely accurate.
Orange: The enddate might be off by a couple of days. Domains might drop earlier or later.
Red: The enddate can't be determined correctly. Domains might drop earlier or later. It is best to consider the enddate just a guess!
