Why to buy An Expired Domain more precisely deleted domain?

Domain is the name which is rented for an year or more depending upon the plan you choose. So it comes with the expiry usually its after a year, those who wishes can renew it or let it expire and when this expired domains get’s deleted after an interval of time you can buy this expired domain again. If a domain is expired it will not be available for people other than who bought it actually to buy it again. for new ones it need to be deleted and then it will be available to be bought.

For Example I have a domain which is expired now the third person comes to search and find this name quite cool and buys blogger here .com which will be available to buy once it is deleted by the registrar from where it was previously booked. Is it confusing ? Well see :

A buys Blogger HERE.

A doesn’t renew it

BloggerHERE gets expired

B want to buy a domain

B searches for the domain finds BloggerHERE

B finds BloggerHERE expired but not deleted

B waits till it get deleted

B buys BloggerHERE and gets Apy

NOW PLease Don’t say you haven’t got it!

But now a Big Question Comes How to find it?

Find an expired domain!
expired domain

For this simply go to and click on deleted domains select the Top level Domain like .com .net .org etc or choose all.  Search for the name apply filters as per you need!

After Selecting what to do?

Don’t straight away buy after selecting the domain. After select a couple of domain check for PageRank, Domain Authority, Page Authority and IP addresses. That will give you an idea about the value of domain. For this visit this site its simple and no adons that would irritate you!

Is is all? Not yet a couple of things that you need to keep in mind!


Yes Adsense What If the url is adsense banned? You wont be able to apply adsense codes or codes will work but after some time you adsense will be banned. So why risk?

Since most of the poeople avoid renewing the domain name because they are google adsense banned. So avoid buying if you want to apply for adsense. I too buy a domain without being aware of if it was adsense banned or not I came to know this when i didn’t get adsense approval. For pro blogger or those who has nothing to do with adsense or they know how to deal with those banned domain are useful but not for many of us. To check go to its simple to use and no irritating ads.
