I Cannot Renew my Domain

  1. I went to renew my expired domain, but I can't seem to do it. My original domain is jesadler.com - I want jesadler.wordpress.com to point to this. When I go to jesadler.com it pulls up a standard wordpress blog that is not the same as my original blog. Please help. I am unable to renew it.
    Blog url: http://jesadler.wordpress.com/

  2. I reviewed jesadler.com in the WordPress.com system, and it appears you let it expire 67 days ago on 2012-05-16. It might be possible to get the domain back for an additional redemption fee (which is imposed by our registrar provider). The fee is an additional $80, are you interested in finding out if that's an option in this case? If not, what you can do is let the blog completely expire and then try to register it again. Note that it take about 80 days for a domain to go through the entire expiration process and it's possible for someone else to pick up the domain at an auction or with a backorder before that time is up. If no one else is interested in the domain, then it would be released back to the public after the 80 days is up.

  3. I would like to redeem this domain. How do I go about doing this? I need it to be up and running under jesadler.com no later than thursday

  4. This thread has been flagged for Staff attention.

  5. jesadler.com expired on May 16 and has unfortunately been purchased by someone else since then.

  6. I was told in previous post that I could purchase it for a redemption fee of $80. Why is it now that it has been registered by someone else?

  7. Yes, that was on July 22. In the previous 16 days, it re-entered the public market and was purchased by someone else.

  8. And how do I find out who this is?

  9. The domain is currently registered privately, but you can file a claim via https://www.domainsbyproxy.com/
