Recovering an expired domain

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4630216 posted 10:43 pm on Dec 12, 2013 (gmt 0)

My domain expired just over 30 days ago (I missed the warning email) .
Reading through the email sent me it seems like there may be a very large fee to redeem the domain.

I do not intend to pay that amount and I wonder what are my options?
I know that nobody else will buy this domain as it is practically my own name.

Do I have to wait until it comes back on the market in order to buy it back?

What about the emails that I can no longer pick up .Are they destroyed ?
Will I recover them if I am able to buy back the domain in a month or so?

PS I would prefer not to loose the page rank on Google if at all possible.It is now showing

"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage "

have you checked your registrar's expiration and/or deletion policy?
the policy also affected by which registry is used, so it depends on the TLD as well.

yes the registrar replied to my email to say that I had another few weeks to renew even though the website is down for now.
