My domain has expired. How can I get it back?

Feb 28, 2012 by geek192
Hi guys!
Yesterday, when I opened my CPanel I got a "little" surprise. My domain has just expired because I forgot to renew it?! I've worked for a whole year on my website and now someone can just pick the fruits of my labor! Is there any way I can renew the domain before it is deleted or made available for registration?

Well, it's your lucky day.
There is something called redemption grace period.
It's a period of 30 days when you can renew your domain name, but be careful and do it now - some registrars hold an auction on the 10th day if the original owner has not renewed it.
Good luck!

Try to contact your registrar support immediately!

Just contact  your registrar and renew your domain.
Usually registrars put your domain in SUSPEND status for 30 days then more 30 for redemption period.
