Expired Domain

Sep 30, 2013 by vipGuest
Hi there..
I have a question and would really love to get some input in this regard. After a domain expires, how long will it take before the domain is actually deleted and could be registered by any user other than the initial owner? A domain that I am interested in has expired since around 20 days ago. The current status of the domain is “redemption period”. When would I be able to register it?
Many Thanks

First there I a grace period which would vary by the type of registry. For all .com, .org, .net,.biz,.info the grace period is 40 days. When the grace period is over, the domain would usually go into the Redemtion Period which lasts for 30-35 days
