What is going on when your domain expires? After a domain expires period starts a grace period. This is a period when a domain owner can renew an expired domain at the regular renewal price, and most of the domain extensions have such an option. You can ask about the grace period from your supplier; typically, it is up to 40 days. If you missed this grace period, then your domain moves to the redemption period.
