Buying domain from NameSilo during (after?) Redemption Period

Hi all. I had a domain with NameSilo that expired 2019. Someone else (maybe NameSilo themselves?) registered it and had one of those parking pages on it.

The domain expired again. I would like to register it, but not for a bunch of money. It's been listed as "Redemption Period" for 60 days, which I thought was the time frame when it would become available again, but I still can't buy it back.

Does anybody know if NameSilo uses a longer period to make a domain available? I don't want to contact them because I'm worried they'll want to monetize it. Heck, I think even checking the Whois might have triggered some kind of algorithm showing that it's valuable.

Thanks.

  • Gah! I guess it didn't come up during my searches because I keep looking for Redemption Period. I'll give it a couple more weeks, then. Thank you!

  • Sav.com has a "free" backorder service, where basically they'll try to snipe the domain for you exactly at expiry. Free is in quotes because they don't charge you $50-100 upfront like most backorder services, you just pay like an extra $6-7 or something if the registration is successful - on top of the normal domain registration price.

  • You will want to watch the NS expired auctions for it then.

    Is that auction for namesilo registered domains or for all the domains independently from the register?

    Yep, I have a few domains with them because they were the cheapest for registration/transfer. They managed to snag 2 domains for me with the backorder system

  • I signed up for the backorder from sav.com, but NameBr*ght snipped it. :pensive: Oh, well, there's always next year.

    Thanks, all!
