    a domain that has expired that was previously registered for at leat one year.
    If the registrant does not renew the domain then it goes thru a "drop cycle"

    There is no problem with drop domains if they are in good conditions, still some people comment about this.

    Before buying a dropped domain make sure to check the domains history by going to archive.org and google search.

    I have many dropped domains in my possession from ages ago and they are all still doing well. In fact, some have increased over time and are doing very well.

    Sometimes it is freaking out to buy a dropped domain. I have purchase a dropped domain once, put WP on it, do lots of SEO for almost a year, writing content and it never been pick up by the search engines. One should be careful when thinking of getting dropped domain cuz many cases that the previous owner do lot of spam to the particular domain and the domain has been marked by the search engines as spammer. I had my time with it, if someone knows how to do a safe buy on a dropped domain, I would be appreciate it so much.

    interesting info here guys I'm just buying a few domains and wondering about getting the odd dropped one. They are only $15 for 2 and both have pr2 so not much of a risk.
    Just want to use them for blog nextwork to get backlinks indexed.

    A drop domain list containing the expired domain names that will be deleted from the domain name registry in the near future. These is typically used by domainers to locate expiring domain names with value.

    Once a day, Domain Radar will focus on one domain name that will be dropping within six days. In other words, only domains in Pending Delete (the final stage of the expiration process) will be featured here.

    3-20-2005
    After being dormant for several months, this feature will be published regularly again. Today, we focus on Refurbish.biz. This domain will drop on 3-21-2005. The extension fits well because it could be used for a renovation business.

    10-31-2004
    Keep an eye out on two great .orgs that that are currently in the .org pending delete cycle, Budgets.org and Emperor.org. Both have several lower extensions taken and would make great additions to anybody’s domain portfolio.Read More
