What are expired domains and why would anyone need one?
As you might already know, domain names aren’t issued without a deadline. The can expire and be discontinued out of the blue. You pay an annual fee to maintain the ownership of any domain and if you fail to make the payment in the specified time, you lose your ownership rights. In this case, the site might be gone, forever. Or is it?
The domain goes up for sale once again and anyone can purchase it. If the domain was an authority one, it will keep part of it’s juice, and you can benefit of it once you purchase it. That’s why in order to get your hands on a recently expired domain name, you can buy it through a domain auction or carry out your own expired domain search.
