Hello everyone, 
I have bought a domain name from GoDaddy 2 year ago and this year my Domain name has been expired and I didn't notice that. and when my domain name has expired someone buy my domain name and use redirection to a porn site. when Someone visite my website it automatically redirect to a porn site. 

is there any way that I can get back my website or stop those redirections? it is ruining my company existing reputation.

@icemann1 Unfortunately no, you no longer own the domain name since you let it expire.

But they are ruining our company reputation. As you have al authorization of that domain you must do something regarding this issue. you can warn them to don't use those redirections to a porn website. I don't have a problem that they owned my domain but I have problem what they are doing after buying my previous domain name. please do something.

@icemann1 First off, I do not work for Godaddy. Secondly, you could try to take legal action against the domain owner but again, there are many domain parking services which offer the "adult" category. Even if you were to take legal action against the new owner of the domain name the fact remains that the domain name expired and the new owner is allowed to do whatever they'd like with the domain within the law of course.
