It depends on the status of domain involved; most domains can be recovered within a week. But if someone else now owns the domain, then you will have to go via the Law Courts.
Most of the time there is zero to a very little cost in recovering your domain. Some types of domains require you to pay for the re-registration cost. If the domain is now owned by someone else, then you will likely have to negotiate with them a price, or take them to court.
Once a domain is registered, it’s almost impossible to force a change in ownership without an agreement with the current owner. But most types of domains are subject to a usage agreement, and if the current owner is not meet the requirements to owner that domain then legally the domain has to be released. For example, all Australian domains must be associated with an active ABN with a business name or trademark that is similar to the domain name in use.
Most domain types have ‘domain lock’ function which gives you a little more protection from your domain being transferred. Queensland Tech normally enables domain locks by default, but give them a call to check on the status of your domain.
EPP – is the term often given regarding a domain name password/code, this gives you access to the domain and enable you to move it to other domain providers / registrars. EPP actually stands for ‘Extensible Provisioning Protocol’ which is what defines the protocols around domain management and domain status.
