My domain had been expired and entered into grace period.
Despite of the reminder email sent by the provider a month before, I tend to hold it off till the last day.

Eventually it expired and entered the grace period.
It look like something like below and got notification that email forwarding and everything might not be working anymore.


Then only found out during this grace period, it can still be renewed.

Here is the life-cycle of the domain, in case you have missed the expiry date.
There a still a few days to catch it before its too late ( .net 45 days , for others TLDs it might be different ).


While, we are looking at it now.
Might as well enable the 2 Factor authentication . :)
