I had previously owned www.passmorecreekimages.com as a domain name purchased through Yola. It expired a bit ago and I'd like to renew it, but it says it is unavailable for renewal. Is there anything I can do to get this domain back?
Your domain has expired: 2011-05-16 which is why you are not able to renew this. There is only a one month grace period after your domain expires that we are able to recover this.
It will go through a deletion process at the registrar, and then will be offered back up for purchase once it is available. Regardless of where you register your domain, the domain registrar only has a 30 day window in which to retrieve lapsed domains.
This is to protect users who let their domains lapse in error while still keeping the process moving forward to prepare domains for sale again.
Your only option at this stage is to wait for the domain to be released and then repurchase it. To do this, you will first need to unpublish your site by following the steps on this link: How to unpublish your site.
