registry allows a short period of time to renew at your normal
registration price, but then they raise the price considerably, and if
you don’t pay the grace period redemption price they delete the name.
Once the name enters the deletion queue, we lose the ability to retrieve
it for you. You have to compete for it on its deletion date, and if
you’re able to regain it, it may be expensive. We strongly recommend
renewing your domains well in advance of their expiration dates to avoid
the frustration and expense of this process.
