Re: domain cancellation

Domains generally have a grace period after expiry.  It may vary by registry, but usually about a month and a half.

If it is a domain you plan to keep you're better off recovering it into your account.  It could then be pointed to a different host using nameservers or DNS records, or the domain could be transferred to another registrar.
