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.

How do I recover it, because I've already deleted it and I need it back

Check if you can manually recover the domain into your account.


If it's not there you can contact support as they may have additional options for you.
