On the 25th October 2011 I accidentally let two domains, jaoss.org and jaoss.com expire. I was aware they were due for renewal but do occasionally lose track of which domains are set to auto-renew and which aren't, given that I usually have 50–60 at any one time registered with 123-reg. This article isn't a dig at their control panel—though it is frustratingly opaque at times—but either way, the domains expired. My bad. It's happened before, and it'll happen again, and the usual course of action (until now) has been to renew the affected domains as usual during a “grace period” in which the domain has technically expired but the registrar offers the usual renewal process (and price) to the owner.
