FAQs on deleted domain names

I found a domain name, which was indicated as free in the responsible whois-server and ordered this over your side without whois-query. Am I guaranteed getting this domain name?

No. At the time of the order we cannot take over a warranty for the execution by the responsible NIC and the actual availability.

The root whois-servers do not have constantly the latest information and can not do also.

Even if a domain name is indicated to you as free, one second before somebody else can have ordered with any provider in the whole world exactly this domain name and this order reaches the registrar before your order. Until the name is registered and the whois-servers were updated, the domain name further is indicated as available.

However the assignment takes place by the "first come, first serve" principle - and a domain registration is only obligatory if it were confirmed by the responsible NIC.

This lasts with standard domains (e.g. .at, .com, .ch, .de, .info, .net, .org etc.) usually only a few minutes and you will receive automatically a message from us whether the domain name concerned could be registered for you or not.

What are deleted domains?

Deleted domain names are domains, which were registered already for a person, company or organization etc. and either were deleted (closed) at expiration of the registration period or by application of the domain owner and thus are available now world-wide for anyone for new registration.

Where do you get the information about deleted domain names?

With our search engine domaxxx.de you can query a large number of registered domain names of the most usual TLDs. The robots of these engine are scanning constantly the web for new and deleted domain names. However we take over no warranty on topicality and completeness of the information.

Why are some domains first indicated as deleted in the list, however then as registered with the whois-check?

The reason for this is quite extensive. In the InterNet there are thousands differently whois-servers, which pass their information on to the so-called root whois-servers (iana.org/root-whois).

The answer of a whois-server is not standardized, so that for this reason one asks the root whois-servers for the inquiry.

The information received there cannot be up-to-date - exactly in the time, in which a domain name was deleted with the NIC and in which the responsible whois-server pass on its information at the root whois-server. This can take some hours, meanwhile the root whois-server does not know the new status of the inquired domain.

There is naturally the possibility, to get the current answer of an whois-query immediately by pursuing from the root whois-server up to the in the long run responsible whois-server - however an evaluation of the different answers is substantially too complex due to missing standardisation.

Every now and then whois-servers define very restrictive inquiry ratios and some whois-offerers protect their services by captchas or other ways of "Bot"-recognition in order to avoid abuse. For this reason are the speed and number of at the same time possible whois-queries reduced.
