    When they expire a domain goes into a "redemption" status. They original owner just needs to pay his fee, and sometimes a penalty (depending on registrar) and everything will be fine. It can stay in redemption for weeks. If he does nothing with it, then the registrar will put the name up for sale in an expired domain name auction. If the site had any kind of traffic at all then a domain speculator will buy it and put up a ton of revenue generating ads. If the site makes $20 a year in ad revenue then they have made a profit. If you have 10,000 sites making $50 a year in ad revenue then you are banking 500k without burning a metric ton of calories.

    No, that would not have been hilarious. There is enough room on the planet for the two different styles of internet forums.
