  • Getting my Domain back!

    About a year ago, i purchased a hosting package from Hostonce.com (yeah, if i only know about them before i bought it....) and well, they thought i was taking up too much bandwidth (even though i signed up for unlimited bandwidth -_-) and kicked me out of their hosting. The good part was that they let me keep the domain and i was able to change the dns to another host. Now, the year has passed and my domain expired. I was expecting my domain to come back on the market so i can register it with godaddy or something, but it wasn't and after speaking to hostonce's customer support, they said it would take 45 days for it to be back on the market. Now, i have NO idea what to do. I really want my domain back but i'm not sure how to do it. If anybody knows, it would help so much if you can help. Thanks

    Well as long as your name is listed as the administrative contact you have control over it. I will assume your webhost registered the domain for you? If so find out what domain registrar they used and talk to them directly. If your webhost is also the domain registrar then I guess you SOL. In either case like I said if you are the adminitrative contact on the domain then go to godaddy and do a domain transfer. Godaddy will contact the previous registrar and the adminstrative contact for approval of the transfer.
