    Domain in redemption status - advice on course of action

    Hi there.

    I had a domain.
    I also had major issues with the webhost through which i registered and hosted the site. Among other things, they were overcharging me and we entered a long period of email exchanges to sort our disagreements.

    I had other sites to tend to and did not renew the website which has now entered a redemption period.

    Webhost claims i must pay $160 to get my name back.

    I want the domain back. I obviously dont want to pay $160.
    And even if i decide to pay this fee, i definitely want to move it to a new host.

    I believe the redemption period is 30-40 days, after which it goes back into the market at regular price.

    So, i was thinking of purchasing the same name but xxx_dot_net instead of xxx_dot_com

    Once the dot com domain name entered the market again, i would purchase it at regular price.

    Is this a good plan?
    Should i backorder the dot com now too?

    Your help suggestions be very appreciated.
