Recover your domain names
When a domain name is deleted, it automatically goes into a 30 day period where it is held by the Registry before being released for re-registration. If your domain is in this status, then your domain name was not renewed prior to its expiry date and was deleted. If you are the former Registrant of the domain, it may be possible to recover this domain during the Redemption Grace Period.
Where do I go to recover my domain name?
By logging into your Domainsatcost.ca account, you can recover your domain name through the Renewal Manager; by clicking on domains in "RGP" status from within the Domain Manager; and by clicking on the URL within the "Domainsatcost.ca RGP Notice" e-mail that is sent to you whenever your domains enter RGP status.

When should I attempt to recover my domain name?
Immediately! To stop your domain from being released to the public for re-registration, the Domain Recovery application process must be completed before the 30-day RGP ends.
Please note: Recovering a domain within RGP status is a manual and time consuming process. As such, successful retrieval of the domain cannot be guaranteed, especially if the redemption process is initiated within the final days of the RGP or outside our regular hours of operation. Please ensure that you allow ample time for this process to be completed in order to maximize the chance of successfully retrieving your domain.
How much does it cost to recover a domain name that is in RGP status?
The cost for the Recovery procedure is CAD $165.00 per domain plus a one (1) year renewal fee.
