Expires and Goes to Auction


When I read the DSAD daily auction list this morning, one name caught my attention: The reason it caught my eye is because the PHH Corporation filed and won a UDRP complaint for the domain name  in mid-2015.

According to DomainTools Whois History Tool, the PHH Corporation was the registrant of in September of 2015, shortly after the UDRP decision: UIDRP

At some point in 2016, the Whois information for this domain name was made private. It looks like the domain name expired in January of this year. There is a message at the top of the landing page that says,NOTICE: This domain name expired on 1/23/2017 and is pending renewal or deletion.” Because the domain name is registered at GoDaddy, it is now in auction at GoDaddy Auctions.

As of the time of publication, the high bid is now $2,555 and there are 22 bids. There are just under 4 hours remaining in the auction. The category listing is “Expired – Expired” which I believe is the categorization for expired domain name auctions.

As is the case with GoDaddy Auctions domain names, I believe the original registrant has a few days to renew the domain name before the winning bidder takes possession. It is surprising to see this domain name expire when it had been won in a UDRP proceeding.
