Renew your domain with Regzilla to extend its
registration for additional time.
If your domain has expired, many registries (like .com,
.net, and .org) have a Grace Period (see below)
during which your domain
will continue working and during which you may renew it to extend its
Regzilla will attempt to contact you during this period if you have
not yet renewed your domain, so be sure to keep your account

After the Grace Period has passed, you will need to go through the
costly Redemption process to get your domain working again.
Redeeming an Expired Domain

for a period of time known as the Redemption Period in which you
can rescue your domain from deletion.

Redemption Period none of your services will work and you will not be
able to administer your domain.
After the 30 day Redemption Period expires your domain will be deleted
from the registry and be available for you or the domain squatters to

not have domains expire unless they are no longer needed by their
owners, so they asses a heavy charge to release the domain.

$90.00 Redemption Surcharge. Since it is a
manual process, it can take up to 7 days to complete.
