I carefully read your support page about domains.
my domain expire 1st of july. so that is 21 days ago.
the support page says the following:
during the first two weeks after expiration, a domain can still be renewed normally. After that, the domain is put up for auction and anyone can bid on it, but the original owner still has the opportunity to renew it for an extra $80 late fee (the owner should contact WordPress.com support). After that, if the owner does not renew the domain and it is not bid on at auction, the domain usually becomes available for registration again within a few days. But sometimes it doesn’t.
how can I find out if my domain(www.lawandgeopolitics.com) has been bought during the auction?
If it isn't bought during the auction can I buy it myself again without paying the late fee of 80$?
The blog I need help with is lawandgeopoliticsdotcom.wordpress.com.
