If you are interested in a domain that someone else owns, but want a specific
domain, you can go to use the monitoring service.
We can catch domains from hundreds of domain extensions. For example, the
following domain types can be caught:
An "expired" domain is still an active domain. With the introduction of the
"redemption period" for many domains, domain owners have the opportunity to
get a domain back one month after the domain has been deleted by the
registrar. Only domains that are 'pending delete' can be registered at short
notice. We also cannot absolutely guarantee customers that we can register the
desired domain for them if it is 'deleted'. But we can give cause for hope:
domains are re-registered by us in a fraction of a second. Secura is one of
the first ICANN accredited registrars to deal with registering deleted domains.
