    You have to pay the registrar your with to get it out of expiration first, about $100.00 us
    If your the legal owner you can transfer after 60 days of registration.

    The name has already expired but they are giving you a last chance to grab it. Thats why the price is high.

    It's easy to conclude such is excessive, rip-off, and what have you when one
    doesn't fully understand or maybe care why such is the case. But then, that
    wouldn't have happened if one stayed on top of it to renew timely, would it?

    On the side, Network Solutions charges $150 and eNom $180. (I think...)

    no need to get so defensive dave...I'm sure you don't know the back story because I didn't post it - so your post is a curious irony don't you think :)

    I guess one could see it that way, although I wasn't being defensive. Goes to
    show various people think in various ways.

    However, one thing I observed (and which I'm not immune to as well) is some
    people tend to reach such conclusions if they didn't take time to try to fully
    understand how and why so is such. Then again, I just happen to know a bit
    more about the business than the average user probably cares to know.

    In fact, I'll share one more bit: registrars don't even have to redeem a domain
    name for its registrant. It's good to know Fabulous offers that option, but no
    registrar is required to do so.

    Just an FYI. ;)

    I appreciate your comments. What I do know about the situation current is that $100 is plenty of money for the top shelf professionals to pseudo move a virtual product in etherland.

    If you have ever worked labor you'll understand the concept just fine. It seems removed from reality and almost surreal. It's not even marketplace dynamics really. It seems more an exploitation - like an accepted form of ransom to be dramatic about it :)

    Regarding whether or not a registrar has to redeem a name; one could certainly argue that evidence to the contrary exist such as, ICANN resolutions and industry practice.

    The reason why I stated registrars aren't required to take a domain name out
    of redemption period is because there's no specific policy or term of ICANN's
    registrar accreditation agreement stating that
    . That issue was brought up
    in a previous ICANN meeting and was eventually clarified.

    I wasn't there myself. The next best thing was getting that from a few people
    who were there, including those working with other registrars.

    Fortunately various registrars see the larger benefit of giving that option to its
    end users. Personally speaking, redeeming domain names is a PITA, especially
    when there's still no automated process.

    Oh, I've worked labor as well in a previous life. It's a humbling experience. :D

    Oh, that's the so-called grace period thing. But note the question and answer
    after the one you found and posted here.

    Also, google around for "domain life cycle". That'll also give you an idea.
