2 Weeks After Seizing 46 Domains, Feds Allow Domains To Expire & Can They Can Go Back To The Previous Owner

On July 5th we told you that some agency of the federal government seized 46 domain names.

We noted at the time all 46 were very close to expiration.

Today the servers on all 46 domain names that were seized on July 4th have been switched back to DomainControl.com, which are the default servers for domain names registered at Godaddy.com and all domain names currently display the message:

“NOTICE: This domain name expired on 07/17/2013 and is pending renewal or deletion”

Which mean the domain name can still be renewed by the owner from whom the domain was seized from by the government in the first place or if not renewed, the domain will soon drop and be available for registration by anyone in the world.

So basically the government spent whatever money it cost to grab these domains and take them off line for just two weeks.

Your tax dollars at work.

Here is a list of the domain names at issue:
