Domain name statuses are the various states or conditions that a domain name can be in, depending on its availability, registration, and other factors. Some common domain name statuses include:
- Available: This means that the domain name is not currently registered and is available for anyone to register.
- Registered: This means that the domain name is currently registered to a specific owner, and it is not available for anyone else to register.
- Pending Delete: This means that the domain name is in the process of being deleted and released back into the pool of available names. This typically occurs when the current owner has not renewed the domain name or has otherwise let it expire.
- Redemption Period: This means that the domain name is in a grace period after it has been deleted, during which the current owner can still renew the domain name and retain ownership.
- Quarantine: This means that the domain name is in a holding period after it has been deleted, during which it is not available for anyone to register. This is typically a short-term status, and the domain name will eventually become available for registration again.
- Suspended: This means that the domain name has been temporarily suspended by the registrar or by the current owner, and it is not currently available for use. This can occur for various reasons, such as a violation of the registrar’s policies or a dispute over the ownership of the domain name
