Our domain expired on March 9th. Today we found out that it was no longer accessible. I asked our IT Manager and he said it is in the redemption period.
We would like to recover it if possible, or if not, know how long until it’s released for re-registration. .
We were concerned we received no notification that it was expiring. Our IT Manager tried to find the ADMIN-C for the domain but couldn’t.
The blog I need help with is tufreedomsquare.wordpress.com.
Please post the URL for the domain in question.
Please post the URL for the .wordpress.com blog you were domain mapping from to the domain.
You will need help from the staff to renew your domain name and it will cost you an additional charge that is set by the registrar – I have flagged this for staff attention
We sent three renewal notifications to the email address on the account which owns the domain.
I can recover the domain, but before proceeding, I’ll need to see the request from the account which owns it, daccardi.
Thank you for getting back to us. We have one problem. Daccardi no longer works for Towson University.
We will reach out to her; but how long will it be until the domain is released to the public?
As the domain is in redemption, it’s entirely up to our registrar partner to return it to the public market, and we have no control over that.
Once you get in touch with daccardi, you should also transfer ownership of the blog to your account: http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account
I was told today that the blog has been transferred to my name.
Do we still need Darci to authorize the recovery of the domain?
The domain subscription is still owned by daccardi. It can only be moved to another account once it’s recovered, and I’ll need to see the recovery request from daccardi.
Hello- I authorize you to recover the tufreedomsquare.com domain subscription and then transfer to nkazanecki. Let me know if you need additional information to make this happen. Thank you!
The domain tufreedomsquare.com expired on March 9 and is currently in redemption. This means that the domain is deactivated, but has not yet been fully released. During this time, you can still renew this domain, but the process is more complicated than a regular renewal.
If you’d like to renew your ownership of this domain, you have several options:
1) We can renew the domain for you through our registrar. This costs $98, which includes $18 for the domain and an additional cost of $80 for a late renewal. We have no control over this additional cost, as it is levied on us by our domain registrar.
2) Try to register the domain through a domain back-ordering service, such as Pool (Registering starts at $60 with Pool) http://pool.com/
3) Wait until the domain is out of redemption and becomes available for registration again. Then, you can register it again for the regular price of $18. This would run the risk of the domain being registered by someone else before you, or the domain not being released for registration at all. The exact redemption period and the release of the domain are at the discretion of our domain registrar and we can’t control it.
If you want to have the best chance of getting your domain back, your best bet would be the first option. If you choose this option, please reply to this thread letting us know. We will then send you a request for payment via PayPal and will contact our registrar on your behalf, asking to restore the domain.
Please note that time is of the essence here. Because your domain is very close to being cancelled, it may no longer be possible to recover it. If you pay for renewal and we are unable to recover the domain, you will be fully refunded.
Sorry, I mentioned “please reply to this email,” that should have been “please reply to this thread.”
If you reply to the email, it will go nowhere.
We would like to renew the domain, please let me know where to send the money.
I have sent the request for funds to the email address on the account which owned the domain.
Once paid, please reply here with the transaction or receipt ID.
Transaction ID: [removed]
Can we also change the domain registration to
[mailing address, email address, and phone number removed from public forum]
Thank you for confirming!
I have contacted out registrar partner.
Once the domain is recovered, I’ll give you information on how to change the ownership details.
http://tufreedomsquare.com/ has been recovered successfully.
Before adjusting registration details, would you like me to move ownership of the domain to nkazanecki?
(for security reasons, I need to see the request for that from daccardi)
I’m authorizing the transfer of the tufreedomsquare domain to nkazanecki. Let me know if you need further information. Thanks!
I have moved ownership of the domain to the nkazanecki account as requested.
To adjust registrant details (mailing address, phone number, name, etc), access your domain manager: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/
