Even though your domain name has expired, you may still be able to transfer your domain to us, depending on your current registrar. 

For example, some registrars place a management lock and/or change the contact information associated with the domain name when it expires. If this is the case for your domain name, then please contact your current registrar and ask them to remove any locks and update the domain to use your contact information.

You must complete the transfer before the domain name moves from expired status to redemption status. The amount of time a domain stays in expired status depends on the domain name extension and your current registrar's policies. Please contact your current registrar for additional information and assistance.
