Thanks, but that doesn't answer any of my questions.
sorry, don't get mad at me, but I only would like to say in a roundabout way that you will not get an answer in this forum, in my view.

How many renewal notices did you ignore?
I have over 300 domain names registered with DOTSTER.com and they never fail to issue notices
60, 45, 30, 15, 10, 5 days before expiration, and on the expiration date plus 5, 10, 15 and 30 after expiration.
I swim in notices! If you still use the email address they have for you, and were not notified, renew it and transfer to a new registrar.
Instead of relying on your interpretation of their Knowledgebase, why not give them a call, grovel a bit, and see what you can work out
