Hello Christopher,

Expired domains go through a series of stages. Within a limited time (30 days I think) simply renewing will restore ownership and useability.

The following stage is a lockout phase whereby neither you nor anyone else can buy ownership of the domain. This period depends on the registrar and can vary between a further 30 to 90 days. If your domain is in this phase then you can only wait for it to become available again. Then be quick as another person could buy the rights to this domain if they are first person to apply.

I would suggest that you send a message to Yola on their contact form and let them know your domain name. They will then be able to give you the full details of your domain details and this will not publish your domain name preventing scavengers from jumping in and buying it first and so hold you to ransom :)
