Holla BHW It's been a long time I haven't lurked around for a number of reasons, but its good to be back, although i wish it was in more relaxed circumstances. I have a website which is down since a few hours and upon checking the whois info, i see that the domain name status is in redemption , and pending deletion. Funnily enough though, i renewed this domain with the domain name company until February 2016. So does this mean that I paid the company but they haven't actually renewed it for me (I renewed it 1 year ago in 2014, for 2 years.. so until 2016.. no reason it should be down now). If this is the case, is it possible that i will lose my domain? And if I do, I plan to sue this company because this website is employing 5 people.. so its a major problem. Really hoping to get some feedback from you guys.
