Let's Discuss Domain Name Statuses
There are three different statuses for your domain name, including Awaiting Verification, Active and Expired.
Learn what each one means, so you can stay you can stay up-to-date on the status of your domain.
If you see this status, this means that verification is required from your end via email.
Please check your mailbox for an email from Automated Genius <firstname.lastname@example.org> with the subject line Action required for domain activation.
It may take an hour for the verification to go through.
The Active status means that your domain is ready to be assigned to a landing page, website or another destination.
This status means that your domain name was not renewed and it has expired.
If it expired less than 60 days ago, we might be able to get it back to you through domain redemption. See this article for more info. Note that there is an $80 fee for redemptions.
Or, the alternative is to wait for the domain to be released back into the open market and purchase it before anyone else does. This is not advised for domains that might be sought after by others.
