This the first time I missed a renew (that I know of). The information is below. Am I in trouble here?

Dates: Created 04-feb-2006 Updated 19-feb-2007 Expires 04-feb-2007

Not if you pay them the $80, otherwise kiss the name goodbye.

Is there a difference between redemption period and deleted?

It says it takes them two weeks to process. If redemption and deleted are the same then there is only about 3 days left.

Hi, does a domain enter redemption 1 day after expiring?

Pending Delete = You lost your change. You're SOL and it will drop and go to Snap

1 month + 7 days? after expiry, the domain will fall into "Redemption" (Registrars have the option to make it sooner). RedemptionPeriod is about a month, followed by PendingDelete = 6 days.

$80 to get the name back in RedemptionPeriod is not expensive. You should do it right away if the name is valuable.

Not normally. The Registrar Hold Period is entered on deletion. After that it goes to Redemption where is theory it is returned to the Register. In practice it is often still with the Registrar and destined for Snap, they do, however, normally mirror that process. However, as the Registrar is going to be a beneficary of the Snaps Action, be prepared to hear them offering all kinds of lame excuses on a valuable domain.

Read the TOS for your specific Registar, they vary quite a bit and so do durations of Registar Hold. Redemptions should be standard.

Try not to let valuable domains expire!

I noticed that Register.com change the nameservers to "expireddomains" and send the name over to Snapnames on day 1 after expiry. The auction starts 30 days later but the actual status in whois doesn't change to redemption period.

I think that ENOM will give you an extra 30 days grace period. I have on two occasions purchases "expired" domains, and once seller renewed they allowed the transfer without penalty. It is a shame ENOM customer service is lacking.
