When a generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) name (.com, .net, .org, . biz, etc) has been expired for more than 30 days, it is automatically assigned a redemption status. During this period the current registrant still maintains the option to renew the domain.
A domain may be recovered from redemption at any time during this 30 day period. A fee will apply in which the first year of renewal is included. This fee is collected by aWebpage Internet on behalf on the registry.
Should a domain not be recovered from redemption is will be struck from the registry and released.

It is becoming increasingly common for domains to be back ordered en masse. Domains are commonly being registered the instant they become available by speculators who then charge the original domain owner an exorbitant price to regain control of the domain.
In light of this increasing trend, customers wishing to keep a domain that has entered the redemption period should submit a redemption request rather than waiting for the domain to be deleted. We can in no way guarantee that the domain will not be registered by another party when it becomes available, and the redemption charges are likely to be much less than the costs asked by a new registrant.
