I can not understand. I forgot to renew my domain in time and the registrar blocked this domain. I don’t see an option to restore and renew my domain. Can the registrar block it immediately?

awww, I legit came here thinking the title was the start of a joke, so lets see if i can finish it in case anyone comes along with the same hopes and dreams:..

Why did the registrar block the domain: because you forgot to pay your bill LOL

:rtear:

But no seriously, your domain has an expiry date. if you dont renew it before then it will be terminated and become available for purchase again. You may be able to contact the provider and get it reinstated by them if you have already passed the final date before renewal..

as said above, if you let a domain expire then you lose all rights to it.

if you're lucky, you can still get it by making a new contract for it.
unfortunately there are a number of domain grabbers that automatically check for expired domains and purchase them as soon as they can, in order to redirect the traffic to their own sites.
In a lot of cases they even offer to sell the domain back for an extra fee for them.

you'll have to check if your old domain is still expired or already purchased by someone else, and then you can try to get it back depending on its status.

in some cases you might be able to get it back by contacting the hosters support claiming that you accidentally forgot to pay on time.

Is your domain blocked for sure? As far as I know, there is a minimum 14 days when you can renew your domain for the same price as usual. But even if more time has passed, you can still restore the domain, but the price will be higher. At least at https://pananames.com/ registrar, this is exactly the case. Although I’ve heard some registrars block the possibility of domain renewals if you forgot to do it in time. I would not recommend using the services of such registrars.

Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to restore the domain. This is very sad ((

You are definitely out of luck with your choice of a domain registrar. I would not continue to use such services. Better to change your domain registrar to another one.

Sigh...I can do everything I need for this game but make actual sprites and tile maps for it. Guess I'll look into hiring someone for that
Goes looking for assets, ends up creating memes. I have priorities?
i'm working on finishing an old game in vx ace (the first game i tried to make in vx ace), and it's making me realize how many things i've come to take for granted in mv (like the additional BCDE tile layer and the plugin manager).
It's ma birfday! Gonna chill and work on my project, editing some icons for my compass rn. Later It's pizza and a movie, maybe Blazing Saddles...
I really hope Google stadia/Amazon luna become successful household "consoles" in the future only because I could see it being 1000x easier to get RPG Maker and other indie games on their platforms & if so I PRAY they have gate keepers to keep half baked indie games out of the mix so they don't end up like steam/itch.io with 1000s of incomplete RM projects that continue to give our community a bad stigma.
