It still resolves to a site, so I assume that it hasn't expired for whatever reason.

I assume the owner updated it after the Nov 12, 2004 'last udated' date.

Why hasn't the record been updated?
When you check the Whois there are too expiry dates given, one from the registry and one from the registrar. The domain only gets deleted if goes past the expiry date at the registry.

From my experience in drops in a previous life, when the domain goes past the renewal date most registrars add a year to the record at the registry, before it goes in to Redemption Period the year is then removed again. Some smaller registrars notably Australian ones are very lax. I pulled back a domain recently that should have been deleted over a year ago. I had to pay two years subscription, but did not incur any penalties.

Best Regards
