    Unhappy Cannot rebuy my doman

    Hi guys,

    My previous domain company canceled my domain. Now the WHOIS says it is not still registered there. However, I cannot buy it in another registrar as it results taken. I do not understand what is going on. What do you advice me to do? Thanks!

    It is in the Redemption Period.

    You have 30 days after expiry to acquire it from your domain name registrar before it gets released to the public.You may have to pay an additional fee for this.

    You can only re-register with your previous registrar, so you'd need to contact them. You will probably need to reset your name servers again after getting it back so any emails sent to the domain during the interim will probably be lost.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks very much for the explanation. I just contacted my ex-registrar. I hope they will allow me to register in another registrar as they have interrupted business relationships with me.

    Thanks again.

    You're welcome.

    You'll probably have to register with your original registrar, then do a domain tranfer to a new provider.

    You have to wait for redemption period and then deletion period, if you want to register it at nominal rates otherwise you have to pay alot to get this from your ex-registrar.

    Good luck

    You are risking. You'd better have the domain name renewed with your old domain name registrar and then transfer to the new one. That is the safest way for you, unless domain name you own is not important for you

    There are two options for you:


    • Renew the domain with your old registrar and wait for 60 days in order to transfer it to some other registrar.
    • Let your domain expire, delete from the registry of current registrar and to become available in market to re-register. In this case you will have to continue monitor the availability of domain.

    ^ the second option is risky because if you let it expire, there are chances that someone may register it before you try or anyone can grab it through backordering.

    If you have a company name registered, you can get ICANN to be the arbitrator and get back the domain. The fees are at least 400USD. Normally I would send a email to the owner (Find it via Whois) and request they release the domain for 67USD. If they don't budge than i'll proceed with the next step.

    I agree with Siberforum. Don't take the risk. Do it with the old registrar and transfer it for peace of mind.
