To find expired domains visit a domain registrar. There you can surf through both expired and available domain names. Since this information changes on a daily basis, you may want to consider other methods to effectively locate the domain of your choice.

How to Find Expired Domains

Online, automated monitoring systems can do the brunt of the work for you. Simply tell the registrar which domain name or names you are waiting for. From there the system can automatically scour the daily list of expired domains.

When and if one of your choices is released you will be notified immediately of its availability. This process can save you a significant amount of time sifting through thousands of unwanted URLs. On the average day there are nearly 100,000 expired domain names.

Set Up a Backorder List

Another approach you can use to find expired domains is setting up a backorder list. Simply being notified by way of email may not give you enough time to secure the domain you want. In these cases you can ask the registrar to purchase the domain the second it becomes available. They do this on your behalf which eliminates the chances of you missing a brief window of opportunity.
