    Your domain is in redemption – you will need staff help to renew it – someone has flagged this for staff attention

    Hi Kathleen,

    The domain qhnweb.com expired on 11-19-2012 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 $106, which includes $26 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 $26. 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 email letting us know. We will then send you a direct request for payment 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.

    I would like to use the first option to renew through wordpress and your domain registrar. I will pay the $106. Please let me know where to find the billing request as soon as it is available.

    Hi mrfixitco,

    I recommend starting a fresh thread for new requests (that goes for other users reading this thread!) but I am happy to help you, sure.

    Your domain is also in redemption. The cost will be $106; I need to get explicit confirmation from you that you are willing to pay this to try to retrieve mrfixitco.com, which includes $26 for your domain and the $80 fee from the registrar for redemption retrieval.

    Cheers!
