one of my domains expired today- is it gone for good?

 7:22 pm on Mar 4, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hi all,
one of my domains expired today and the site now has a enom directory with ads on it. I quickly went to my registrar and renewed it through them via the web. They do not take phone calls. The whois still says my information.

Do I have any chance of recovering this domain, or is it gone for good?

I have read here that owners have a grace period. Is this still true, or is it totally dependent on which registrar you go through?

anyone have any experience getting back a domain the day it expires?

You should be fine as long as it did not go into redemption period. Godaddy charges about $80 for this while bulk register charges $140 to get it out.

Contact your registrar to renew, this is usually no big deal. All should be fine.

well it has been 24 hours since I renewed it and still no response from the registrar yet and my (former) site still shows some spammy ad site. The whois has not changed from my original information yet.

fyi - my registrar never responded to my emails or phone calls. He was a reseller for enom.com. So I contacted enom directly and was able to transfer my domain to them even though it was locked.

They were able to override the reseller's lockout and give my domain back instantly. It cost me a bit more to register through enom, but it is worth it to be out from under the reseller.

Glad to hear it. Yeah, that's the way to deal with reseller problems.
