What happens when a domain expires?

After a domain expires, it will be available for registration by anybody. We provide free domain names with our annual hosting packages.� If your account is current and we manage your domain name for you, we will automatically renew it for you.� If your account is not current or you manage your domain name yourself, you will need to renew your domain name yourself.�

If you are late paying for your hosting and your domain name goes into redemption (generally 15-30 days after it expires), we may still be able to renew it for you, but the registrar will charge a $150.00 fee to do so.�

If you forget to renew your domain name and it is no longer able to be renewed,�and someone else buys the name, there is very little you can do to recover it. In some cases, the new registrant may be willing to sell the domain.

Alternatives to buying back a domain are to register the same under with a different TLD (www.yourDomain.net instead of www.yourDomain.com)
