Domain Status: PENDING DELETE

Once a domain name leaves the REDEMPTION PERIOD status it goes into PENDING DELETE status.
Under most circumstances, a registrar will not allow for you to renew yoru domain name once it has reached PENDING DELETE status. There are some rare exceptions (and it also depends on the registrar).
Under rare circumstances, a domain will not enter the PENDING DELETE status and will be dropped immediately after being removed from REDEMPTION PERIOD.
A domain name will drop, and become available for registration six days after it changes status to PENDING DELETE. Under some circumstances, a domain name can drop in 5 days instead of 6.

Domain Status: REDEMPTION PERIOD

Once a domain name leaves the registrar-hold status it goes into REDEMPTION PERIOD status.
Although the domain has technically expired and gone through REGISTRAR-HOLD status, the owner still has the opportunity to renew it for at least 10 days (usually).
Under rare circumstances, a domain will not enter the REDEMPTION PERIOD status and will be dropped immediately after being removed from REGISTRAR-HOLD.
Depending on the registrar, a domain name can remain in the REDEMPTION PERIOD status anywhere from 1-35 days, with 30 days being the average.
