If you do not make payment for your domain before its expiry date it will have all services we provide suspended and:
 

For UK Domains Registered At Nominet:

You will then have up to 30 days (protected period) after to renew the domain name at the original renewal fee.

After 30 days your domain will be suspended and will go into a 60 day grace period which you can still renew your domain name but with an additional redemption fee of £25 + VAT. This must be requested by email before the 75th day after your domain has expired and payment made. Between 75 days and 90 days after the renewal date we cannot guarantee to renew the domain but once payment has been made we will attempt to renew on your behalf.

After 90 days your domain will be cancelled and deleted from the register and made available for resale.
