Renew domain

  1. My domain expired when I was away traveling in November and I'm trying I renew it or buy it again and it says it is already taken

    The blog I need help with is karaphotographydotorg.wordpress.com.

  2. HI ,
    What is the domain you are trying to book. So we can understand better and enable you to get your domain.

  3. karaphotography.org

  4. HI ,
    Just checked the details of your domain. Your domain is in Redemption period. You will probably have to pay an additional charge to register the domain with you again. The charge usually depends on the service providers. You could check with your service provider directly or we can check , one of our happiness engineer would provide you details of the charges in order to get it re registered with you. Also the other option is chances are your domain would be available after the redemption period which is usually 30 to 35 days then you can purchase it on a normal price if there are no other buyers.
    Hope this was helpful , one the happiness engineers would help you soon.
    One of the happiness engineers will revert you soon.

  5. Thank you for your help, that was part of the problem, I didn't know who was providing the service. What would the fee be and what is the date my domain becomes available again?

  6. The expiration took place on 2016-12-21

    The availability depends on service providers between 30 or 35 days.

    Please read: Domain Expiration
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-expiration/#redemption-period

    The above will give you some more useful information as well.

  7. Ok how do I go about paying the fee and buying the domain again

  8. Hello, can you please tell me how to pay the fee to get my domain back? I need it back immediately

  9. Hi,
    I have made the wordpress staff aware by adding the needed tags. Someone from the team will revert you soon. Thanks for being patient. They'll get in touch soon.

  10. Howdy -

    Adding the 'modlook' tag will flag a thread for staff attention.

    I've confirmed that karaphotography.org is in redemption. I'll be happy to start the process of recovering the domain. There is an additional $80 charge that is billed by our domain partner to recover a domain from redemption. Please confirm that you agree to pay that charge and I'll get the process started.

  11. Yes please that would be great

  12. No problem!

    You should have an email from me. It outlines the redemption process and also has a payment link for the redemption fee + domain registration for the year.

    I've also sent a note to our domain partner already asking that the domain be restored. I should hear back from them within 48 hours and will give you an update asap.

  13. Hi Liz,

    I just paid for my domain to be restored and still don't see it showing up. Does it take a while or is something wrong?

  14. Hi -

    I'm waiting to hear back from our domain partner. Once I hear back that the domain is restored, I'll add it back to your account and everything will be working. I'll post an update as soon as I have more information.

  15. Thank you very much!

  16. The domain has been restored to your account.

    It isn't working quite yet, because it has name servers pointing to both Wix and WordPress.com.

    Which ones are correct?

  17. It should be pointing to wix

  18. Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm having a similar problem. I've been locked out of my original wordpress.com site and I made a new wordpress.com just so I could post here. I've sent two emails and no response. The domain in question is ginabearsblog.wordpress.com. I will happily pay the fee as well. Please help me get back into my original account and my wordpress back!

  19. HI ,
    What is the domain you are looking for (ginabearsblog.com) that is what is the .com domain you are looking , so we can analyze and update you , what we can do best for it.. !

  20. ginapanozzo - I've sent an email to the email address on the account for ginabearsblog.wordpress.com. We need to hear from you under that user account in order to move forward with the redemption of ginabearsblog.com. You can post here from the correct user account or reply to the email. Either is fine.

  21. ginapanozzo - I've replied to your email. Closing this thread.

  22. karatibbel - I've updated the name servers for you to point the site to Wix.

  23. Hi Liz,

    My website is now working since you changed the name servers over to wix but my email address I have associated with my domain is no longer working. Do you know why this could be?

  24. We will need to add the MX records for the email. You will get those from the email provider and add them via https://wordpress.com/domains/manage/karaphotography.org/edit/karaphotography.org
