Harper's right. No back-to-back posts. Edit it into your first post. Wink

As for your problem, since it seems like you've already paid and can't get back on, are you logged in? Are you using the right credit/debit card? Are you logged in on both your payment method and website?

Who is your domain name provider? You could try to contact them and ask. It's always worth a shot! Smile

Oops sorry never knew that.

My domain is from forumotion. 2years ago o bought www.CelticBlooded.com for 1 year. That obviously ran out after a year and now when I enter celticblooded.com it says it's already taken.

So how do I get it back if can?
Or is it notnpossible because I never renewed it after 1year??

Someone else may have been able to pay for, & use, the domain names after you didn't renew them. This sometimes happens. It is, after all, quite a while since they lapsed as your domain names.

I would contact Typlo about this since he has domain access and can look things up. Chances are that there was a glitch in the system and didn't tell yo that you needed to renew so it just expired. Sometimes Forumotion can restore your domain name since its still in the system. Would make sure you have enough credits though.

yeah i contacted him but no reply, how long does he usually take to reply?

I just bought 1600 credits so should be okay.

Depending on his load he can reply in a few hours once he gets online or a few days. When did you send him a message? I would resend a message every 24-48 hours.

About 12 hours ago. But tbh I can't wait any longer so I jus changed it to .net.

Was browsing through other stuff and I don't think he can fix it. Either that or he can't be arced.
