What will happen if I renew such domain

I had ownership of a domain name which was about to expire. Prior to its expiration, I submitted an order for renewal through the control panel, but failed to pay the associated bill.

Despite the outstanding bill and active payment links, the domain was taken away shortly after my missed payment - likely by an automated system.
As of now, it remains uncertain who the rightful owner is, and it seems unlikely that it will be returned. However, I am curious about the outcome if I were to attempt payment on the overdue bill.


I am curious to know what information whois currently displays for this particular domain name. If the unpaid bill is settled, the funds will be deposited into your personal account balance; however, as the service no longer exists, the funds will remain unused in that account.

In certain domain zones, a grace period of 30 days is allowed after the registration period expires for renewal. However, this is not always the case. If the domain belongs to a zone without such a grace period, any payment made towards the renewal would be returned to the registrar's internal account.
