If you're one of those that benefited from the domainking N500 domain name offer last year in Nigeria, I'm very sure your domain name will be expiring soon.
You must renew the domain name at domainking before it expires if you want to continue to use it for your website or blog. If you're no longer interested in it, simply don't renew the domain name.
Normally, when your domain name is about to expire at the end of its registration period, domainking will send you an email message to remind you that it's time to renew and an invoice will also be generated for you. If you don't want to keep the domain name, just ignore the email and don't pay the renewal fee. Their system will then automatically terminate your domain name once it expires, and that's that. When you type that domain into your browser after the grace period, you will no longer see your blog.
Thereafter, someone else can swoop right in and purchase your domain name. This means that any traffic, any backlinks, and anything else you have done to drive people to it will be lost. If you wait too long to renew your domain names you will end up having to pay more money to get them back. This can get very expensive as you might end up paying nearly twice as much to renew your domains.
