Question by Don Stevens: How long until I can register an expired domain name?
Let’s say a domain expires and the owner does not renew it. How long does it take until it’s up for grabs?

It depends on the registrar, Some are kind enough to hold it for you, and send you e-mails to remind you, while some just let it go and don’t care. Usually, you are given a 30 day period before the name is up for grabs.
Also, you need to consider that some domains can be renewed automatically, so once it expires, it gets renewed and recharged on the credit card.
