Hello Leojin

Can you please share with us your domain URL? There is a bit of a grace period by which your domain can still be renewed if you wish. I'm hoping that your domain will fall into that time frame!

No, it's been over a month so my grace period is over.

I did not have any intentions of keeping that domain name which is

slow-down-your-aging.com

because I was planning to change it to something short.

Assuming that it will revert back to yolasite.com subdomain which is

www.powerdrink.yolasite.com.

Another thought came to my mind that maybe if I rename the subdomain it will go live under the subdomain name.

So I changed it to www.supervitamin.yolasite.com.

But still, it's tied up to the old registered domain.
Thank God the contents of my pages are still there but not going live online.

I hope I didn't sound confusing here.

Thanks for your help.

SUPERRRRRR!!! Thank you sooooo much.

Does it take much time to revert?

It's still pointing to the expired registered domain name.

It looks like it's working already - I clicked on the link you provided above and was able to view your site. If you don't see your site, could you let me know what you do see?

That's no good! Can you try a different browser or clear your cache? http://www.google.com/support/account.... Could be that the change is stored in your browser...
