It’s very difficult to talk about on this topic but as per expertise i can explain what will happen after your domain expired? and what can be done?. Usually expired domains can be renew between 25 to 45 days from the date it expired through the same registrar as regular cost. The hold period is depend as per the domain tld’s/extension.
Registrar holds the domain for 45 Days and after that it goes into redemption period, it means your registrar still has the control and can renew it, but with the extra fees which comes around 5 times more than the regular price. For Example if your domain renewal nominal/regular fees is around $11 USD then you will need to pay around $55USD to $75USD and once you pay the fees it will remain in your control panel and get renewed for next year. Redemption period is usually 45 to 60 Days.
After 60 to 70 Days from the date of expiry, it comes as fresh domain in the market and can be register again. This time sometimes works as payback time as mostly people register expired domains for their SEO Friendly Keywords, Google Page Rank, High Traffic, Backlinks. For Example if you have domain keyword engineering or support then it’s very hard to register the domain once its available in market. Why Not?
Mostly Domain Portfolio Companies OR Domain Investors blocks and hold the domains and sell in the market for higher price, this industry these days are highly increasing and most profitable investments.
