There is a domain i want to buy (i aint stupid enough to say the name)

According to the site, it expires Dec 2005
But it is pending renewal or deletion, and i can't buy it till Dec 06.

You shouldnt have to wait a year, but it does take a while for it to be dropped by the registrar, some domain companies sell expired domain names that are good to spam companies who put their link farms or spam search engines on them.

Good luck!

You will have to wait a minimum of 45 days. However the registrar is not required to release the domain after the mandatory grace period. Many of the registrars make their money off of bloated penalties on expired domains.

Longer than that,
Grace Period around 40 days
Redemption Period around 30 days
Pending Delete around 5 days

So you might have to wait approximately around 75 days before you can re-register it. :D

If this domain is very important to you then you can using backorder domain service like or
