Hello cheretclar,

Is the domain name cheretclar.com? If so, it expired on 6 January and while we are able to recover it up to a month afterwards, unfortunately there's nothing we can do to restore it at the moment.

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: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

You can check if you domain is available and repurchase it by following the steps on this link: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

Could you let us know if you received the renewal reminders for this domain? If not, please let us know so that we can try and investigate why you did not receive them.

Yes. That is my domain.

I have unpublished my site. But i can't repurchase it because when i click customize my own domain and type the same domain name cheretclar.com. The system says that it is unavailable. May i know whether i would be notified when it becomes available again? This is because i really need to repurchase it for my business.

I did not receive the reminder that the domain is no longer renewable after the 30 day period.

Hello cheretclar - the domain is going through the deletion process which can take several months. Unfortunately we can't tell you how long that will be because it's something beyond our control. It could be available to purchase in a month or 3 months - we don't know.

We remind you to renew your domain up until the domain expires. Did you get those renewal reminders?
