What are Premium (Expired) Domains?

We have received a lot of feedback that many valuable expired domains are being registered disproportionately by the same few users, who employ sophisticated techniques and possibly scripts to beat other users in the current, race against time, domain registration method for expired domains. Apparently average user has less chance to be successful in getting high interest domains in this process, compared to those who are dedicating lots of time and effort, and had have prior experience to optimize their network.

To level the playing field for the average user we have added optional alternate registration methods, should they choose to use them. We strive to make these registration methods transparent and accessible to all.

Note: The first come first served registration method is fine for regular domains, and it becomes a problem only when the exact time of release of expired domains is published ahead of time, as per requirements. In that case, a fraction of a second delay, or even slow network latency for some client, can become a factor in unsuccessful domain registration.
