How to recover a domain from Expired status?

If you have purchased your domain from and currently it is showing expired status, this means you haven’t paid the renewal payment for your domain. If your domain is expired, your website will fail to run on the internet. It is always recommended to renew your domain before your domain renewal date.

However, you don’t need to worry if your domain is expired. You can still recover it by completing the pending invoice. Once you complete the payment,  your domain will show the Active status but your website may take 12-24 hours in DNS propagation before it become accessible.

If you fail to complete the payment within Domain-Expired status, the domain will be moved to the next status which is the redemption period and there will be an additional cost to recover the domain from the redemption period and the cost may vary depending on your domain TLD.
