    One of my NetworkSolution domain name "Pumpcoin.com" was expired in Dec 2, and it is still within 40 day grace period.

    Today, when I try to transfer/ renew this domain, I found it has been moved out of my account by network solutions.

    I have sent emails to web.com staff and hope they can move it back as soon as possible

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    @omelet - I think I know to where you were moving that domain.

    It is possible that the domain was sent through Snapnames and was sold there. At Epik if the former registrant comes back after grace period and within what would have been the redemption period, we provide a way to recover the "dropped" name for a fee not to exceed $199.

    I believe NetSol/Web.com offers something similar but they will probably have a fee to recoup a name. Registrars typically post their policy. Here it is for NetSol:

    http://www.networksolutions.com/support/domain-deletion-policy/

    I think the relevant section for your purposes can be found here:

    If that does not solve it, feel free to PM me the details.

    Thanks Rob

    but the name is still in grace period , I understand that the domain should be my property that no one has right to
    Move it around

    grace periods vary between registars...but they are nowhere a guaranteed 40 days... u get a guaranteed 25 daya on most... but be careful..some have no grace at all

    40 days is definitely too much for simple reason that all expired auctions are over by that time

    so yer name was just moved to new owner

    if really want keep name..renew b4 expiry..else if u really neeed guaranteed grace..id pick 24 days.. thatll cover u for most places .. but always check terns...example ...1and1 has zero grace time
