    When domain expires

    My question is what happens when your domain gets expire but the website is ranking at the top positions in the search engines?

    Need valuable suggestions.

    every single website will go through the same process when it expires, no matter what rankings it has.
    Once the due date arrives and website owner does not pay, the domain is parked for a couple of days to give the owner time to renew without additional costs.

    When that grace period ends, the owner is still able to renew it but usually with some kind of penalty fee.

    After that, the ownership of the website is forfeited or lost and that domain is now considered an expiring domain. The domain is auctioned and sold to the highest bidder during this stage.

    If no one buys or places any bids, I believe it is now considered an expired domain where anybody can pick it up after paying a fixed price (no more bidding).

    You need to renew the domain asap. After a domain drops, Google will slowly update the SERPs over time (week/s) and remove all of the indexed pages. No indexed pages, no rank.If you can renew the domain within a few days after it expires and get the site back online your ranked pages will most likely return after a while.
    When a domain drops it can't be resold right away, you have a few days but you need to move fast and pay the renewal fee ASAP, within a week or less to be on the safe side.

    Every domain name has pre-defined lifecycle. Once a domain name expires, it goes through various stages before it is released back and made available to general public for registration on first come first serve basis. IndiaLinks sends four (4) renewal reminder emails to customers and two (2) renewal reminder emails to domain's registrant & administrative contact prior to the expiration date.

    Mostly it will go for an offer. But in due time, it should be available for sale on the regular pool.
