    Confusing as to the process of canceling/transferring a domain name. The timing of the process keeps changing. It went from a few days, to a few weeks, to a few months.

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

    ravenrakia.com is in redemption – it expired on Sept. 22 and you did not renew it – you can’t transfer an expired domain name –

    You have two basic choices – get your domain name out of redemption and you need staff help to do that – or you can let the domain name revert to the wild and maybe you can register it again – or someone else might grab the domain name and either use it or hold it hostage

    Thank you – what exactly does “in redemption” mean?
    Do I have to purchase it again to get it out of redemption – even if I want to use it on another platform? And how can I notify staff to get help? WordPress doesn’t seem to have a customer service # (am I wrong?) like every other company in the world so I’m not exactly sure how to get their attention.
