1. When a domain expires, it will go into suspension status and registrars have 45 days to renew or delete the domain. Of course, some registrars will opt to auction off domains during this time if not renewed.

3. When a domain is deleted, it will enter a Redemption Grace Period for 20 days. Domains can be renewed during the first 15 days of the RGP.

4. .Co’s Reservation system went live yesterday. It allows .co registrars to get on a waitlist for expiring .co domain names. It is currently offered by, Domain Monster, eNom, HEXONET, and Pool.
