    Should I back order the domain through the same company it was previously registered with? or does it not matter?

    Depends on the original registrar. 14-day average if I had to take a guess.

    I seem to find mixed information everywhere. The domain will be expired 30 days next Saturday.

    I don't know if its in my best interest to back order the domain or not either.

    I think it varies w/ every top level domain extension but I have yet to confirm this or find any consistent data.

    There's a .com I've been keeping an eye on that has been expired over 60 days but is still in the redemption period.

    There are no industry standards for this shit, and it's annoying. Sometimes the people losing their domains can't redeem them when they try, or they get charged massive amounts of money for the privilege. If it's a good domain, it gets snapped up by the registrar and put into auction instead of going back into the available domain pool.

    Conflict of interest? Gouging? Unfair practices?

    If you have important domains, never let them expire, or you're fucked.
