    Hello :
    I used katzglobal to register a domain several years ago. It is about to expire in 2 days, However their order page is dead since a week ago, they are not answering email or Skype. What it can be done ?
    Thanks

    There's really nothing you can do. This is why when choosing a registrar you should choose someone who's going to be there tomorrow. As a mild fix you can use GoDaddy Domain Back Order Service to ensure if your domain does drop you will probably be able to get it back as soon as it becomes available to the public.

    You should also note that even when your domain expires you have something like 30-45 days to pay the renewal fee. After a few weeks there's a mandatory $80 recovery fee for .com domains, not sure about others.
