Expired - Domain Life CycleA domain becomes Expired one day after its expiration date. While a domain is expired, the email will stop working, and its website is replaced with a 'parked' page indicating that the domain has expired.
Renewing your domain will return it to normal and allow your website and email to start working. You can renew your domain at the normal renewal rates so long as it hasn't been expired long enough to reach Redemption status or purchased by a 3rd party.
Pending Deletion - Domain Life CycleOnce a domain enters Pending Deletion status, the domain cannot be redeemed or changed in any way. The domain will be held for about five days before it is released back into the public for new registration. Once the domain is available for new registration again, it can be registered at the normal domain registration rates (no redemption fees will apply).
Redemption - Domain Life CycleA domain typically enters Redemption about 45 days after its expiration date if it is not renewed or purchased by a 3rd party (30 days if the domain is registered through FastDomains). However, certain top-level domains may enter redemption status the day after the domain's expiration date.
While every registrar handles the redemption period differently, the redemption period commonly lasts for 30 days until the domain enters Pending Deletion status.
Important: When your domain is in Redemption status, you can still return your domain to normal by paying a redemption fee in addition to the normal domain renewal rate
