Buy a expired domain

i want to buy a domain
Domain Name: dstransit.ci
Registry Domain ID: 91796-CoCCA
Registry WHOIS Server:: whois.nic.ci
Updated Date: 2019-05-22T09:38:33.914Z
Creation Date: 2018-03-09T17:57:49.600Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2019-03-09T17:57:49.703Z
Registrar Registration Expiration Date: 2019-03-09T17:57:49.703Z

but it’s always unavailable. i think that it is expired and it is on dreamhost
what can i do?

First I looked at domain status here http://whois.domaintools.com/dstransit.ci
and I saw that it is on server hold https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/epp-status-codes-2014-06-16-en still which is a bit odd. Looks like whoever had it might not have paid the bill, or they may have had a legal dispute or some other issue with their registrar. You might need to contact the registrar on file, which looks like it is AKASSOH. I got that information by filling out the ‘prove you’re a real person’ validation at the bottom of that page, it says Registrar: AKASSOH. It also provides the email etc there. Hosting is separate from registration, so being (or having been) pointed at dreamhost nameservers at one time isn’t really relevant.

Good luck with getting your domain or a good alternative! :slight_smile:
