My domain is in the redemption period. Should I redeem it or wait until it is deleted?

It is becoming increasingly common for domains to be back ordered. Domains are commonly being registered the instant they become available by speculators who then charge the original domain owner an exorbitant price to regain control of the domain.

In light of this increasing trend, customers wishing to keep a domain that has entered the redemption period should submit a redemption request rather than waiting for the domain to be deleted. We can in no way guarantee that the domain will not be registered by another party when it becomes available, and the redemption charges are likely to be much less than the costs asked by a new registrant.
