What is an expired domain name?

An Internet address or domain name is the equivalent of your postal address on the Internet. This is how your customers will find your website. A domain name is essential when creating your website. A domain name is therefore the address of a website, such as www.youdot.io.

An expired domain name is a domain that has been registered but has not been renewed by its holder after its expiration. This can happen for various reasons.

The domain is then available for a new registration.

Expired domains are particularly interesting for their SEO value, mainly related to backlinks (also called incoming links). It is therefore important and useful to determine the quality of the domain according to the backlinks' profile (all external links and information on the nature of these links). You can also evaluate the value of the expired domain based on the indicators available on our platform (Moz and Majestic).
