Hi guys, I hope this is the right place to post a question? I'm *relatively* technical and have registered a domain in the past for my own blog and know a little bit about WhoIs and nameservers... but i'm not an expert. My boss however thinks otherwise and has asked me to get a domain that has expired but is still owned by someone else. it's a .com & expired in mid-August. After doing some Googling, I setup an account with Snapnames and domain monster to try and check in on the accounts once a week or so, and checking this morning I noticed that the 'estimated drop date' is now saying 2017, but the domains 'last update' hasn't changed. Before I go to my boss and tell him I've let him down, I wanted to go in armed with some responses I think he's going to ask: The domain owner is a domain seller & (I think) are a registrar, is it possible they renewed it as they saw whois checks? (to clarify, whilst it was for sale - it was a price my boss couldn't afford to spend). How comes the renewal date has suddenly added a year but not had its 'last update' changed? Can they still renew a domain thats been expired since last august? I thought it was game over after a month? Many thanks for any advice/info!
