Domain expiring: need urgent help

I have missed the renewal deadline for one of my domain names which I have
with a eNic, but the domain has not been dropped yet. When
I contacted them to re-new the name, I was told that they no longer handle
com/net/org registrations and now only deal with .cc domains.

However, I was also told that any ICANN accredited Registrar can initiate a
transfer for the domain name before it is dropped.

When I contacted 2 registar about it, they said that eNic is the only one
who can re-activate the name before it gets dropped.
What can I do? It’s been expired for about a week ago and I am very worried
that I might end up losing that name. Rodney, can it be renewed through your
registar?

I don’t think there’s much you can do at this stage. You can try to
initiate a registrar transfer from another registrar, but I doubt it
would work. Otherwise I suggest you take Rodney’s advice and backorder
it using SnapNames. That would be your best bet.

I would seriously suggest using the snapnames backorder service for this
domain name. This is the exact situation it was designed for, and if you
don’t do it, some other domain speculator might do it before you do.

Either that, or take your chances when it drops. If it’s not that popular,
you might be able to grab it back. If it’s one of your names that you’re
using right now for business…back order it, now. :slight_smile:

I am not sure about the time it first dropped, but I snapped it at around
10:30 PM yesterday. It expired on the 21st.
