I'm waiting for a domain name to expire, and the whois lists the expiration date as 11/2/2011 and the lock status as clientDeleteProhibited. Is this a normal part of domain expiration? And when can I expect the domain to be open for purchase?
The best explanation i've found is here
So at least 30 days + 1-5 days before it 'drops' and becomes available again.
