Why won't my site load (or be found in general) after I've updated my domain?

    My domain expired but I was unaware. When I realized, I paid the extention fee and updated my domain. Now, not only will my site not load with the domain but it also can’t be found with my .wordpress blog url. It also won’t show on internet searches.
    Blog url: http://uhhuhyeahwrite.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is uhhuhyeahwrite.com.

    The system allowed you to just renew the domain mapping record, which it shouldn’t have, so I have refunded that $13 charge.

    The domain uhhuhyeahwrite.com expired on May 24 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.

    Alright, let’s go with the first option.

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I have sent the request for funds to the email address on your account.

    Once paid, please reply with the receipt ID, and I’ll contact our registrar partner.
