Solved Question about new Domain

Post by sugarpooper on March 3rd 2015, 3:44 pm

So my 1 year domain just expired, and was looking to get a new domain name all together, now if i'm reading the rules correctly, i gotta wait 60 days for GoDaddy to clear things up? Just wanted to verify what i've read up on, thanks guys!

Buttercup wrote:By consequences,ForuMotionhas decided to stop the process. If you want to transfer your domain name to another registar, you have to wait until the end of the domain will expire (one year from purchase date).

Once the domaine name has expired, there is still a waiting time before the domaine name be available.This waiting time doesn't depend on our servicebut on Godaddy service. (Over 60days)

After the waiting time, you'll be able to buy the domaine name.


Also was wondering about this since i only saw a "renewal" button:

Hello @sugarpooper

if you had a domain like http://mydomain.com and now you want to buy a new domain like http://mydomain2.com you just have to wait for the expiration of the domain name without confirming the renewal of the domain name Wink

Once that the domain name will expire you will be able to request a new domain name!
Exclamation If you want to keep the "current" customized domain name you just have to confirm the renewal



The text you quoted is related on the transfer of the domain name: for example if I have domain.com bought with forumotion and I want it separated, for example if after the expiration I want to buy it from another domain-registrer as GoDaddy, 1and1, etc..

Hope I understood the question, if not, just tell me Very Happy

Thank you Niko for answering my question, just a bit confused as to when i will be able to choose a new domain name, since i only see a renewal button. In the main page of my admin panel it says "Your domain namehas now expired. You still have the possibility to renew for one year during the next9 daysby going to Credit Managmentat the "Misc" tab."
does this mean i have to 9 days to get to choose a new one?

It means that you have 9 days to renew the domain name that expired.

@sugarpooper no, of course..

it is just saying that you have 9 days more to renew your domain name with the old customized domain name, so if you want to keep that domain name you still have 9 days.. after this period everyone will be able to buy it Wink
For example if I want to buy your old customized domain name I have to wait 9 days, unless you decided to renew it

but if you want to change it, just wait and do not do anything Razz

Pretty discouraging when the manager of the forums has to be so vague when responding to my thread.
