Indian Domainers: How does the process work for dropping domains?

After they expire, domains take 75 days to become available.

During the first 61 days the domains' status is: PENDING DELETE RESTORABLE
During the last two weeks, their status is: PENDING DELETE SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE

The domains are released at 8 pm UTC / GMT.

In other locations the time is:
1.30 am Mumbai and New Delhi
4 pm U.S. Eastern
1 pm U.S. Pacific

Thanks for the kind words, DomainLobe - hopefully we can continue to grow the forum at a steady speed.

italiandragon - welcome! :) A funny time in Australia but 1 or 2 am in the morning in India. I'd love it if someone could explain why thats the time for Indian domains drops!

Yes, the sad fact is they are the ones largely driving the domain aftersales market at the moment so we have to live by there rules. Dammit! ;)

Very true.

.co.in (despite being the more popular extension) is actually the big undiscovered secret in Indian domains

My top ten traffic names include:

7 .co.in
2 .in
1 .org.in

Is it possible for a person who owns a domain, to actually renew the domain in the last 2 weeks of the stipulated time? Frankly I have never tried this, either got them renewed in time or sold them off.

Same Thing but if its too late then why keep it for two weeks before releasing it to public. Or is this two week time given to change info on Whois servers ?

I don't think there is a backorder for .in domains. Not very sure.

it usually ( supposed to) takes 75 days for the drop ...

Check Policies and scroll down to domain life cycle..

Thanks for this Steve. Is this applicable for all the TLD's(cc/gTLD)?
Cheers
