ExpiredDomains.net isn’t just a resource for determining which domains to buy in the drop.
I started dabbling a bit in .gg domain names a couple of years ago, and I found good domains to register in an unexpected source: ExpiredDomains.net.
I use ExpiredDomains.net to find expiring domains, but note that the name is expired domains. You can also sift through already expired domains on the service using any filters you want. While all of the good domains in .com are taken in drop auctions, some good names in less popular extensions make it past deletion when you can hand register them.
Here’s how I find available one word .gg domains that have already expired:
1. Go to the “Deleted Domains” tab on the top of the site
2. Select ccTLDs G and then .gg
3. Click on “show filter,” go to the Dictionary Word Domains box, select English and one word max.
4. Click the button to apply the filter and you’ll see a list of recently expired one word .gg domains.
The resulting list shows the domain, the metrics you select for each column, the drop date and registration status. Take a look at what type of domains have already been re-registered to see what’s popular. For example, when I ran this search, products.gg, drum.gg and luminary.gg were re-registered. Snakes.gg, phobia.gg and firefight.gg were still available. (You can also see domains that were caught in the drop by going to the “Caught Domains” button and selecting the TLD of your choice.)
I used this method to register fraternity.gg and hideout.gg, both of which I subsequently sold. .Gg is becoming more competitive, so it’s harder (but still possible) to find decent expired domains. But you can use this tool to find expired domains in just about every top level domain.
