Let me just clarify, first. You said "temporarily deleting" your website. Does this mean that you are expecting to bring it back up when you are ready?

OK, so if you are planning on bringing the site back at some point, you would not want to delete the site. My best recommendation would be to close the account temporarily, but you will want to reactivate it before May. That is when your domain will expire.

My question has not been fully answered.  Can I keep the domain name by paying for it after taking down the site?

You cannnot still pay for the domain while just disabling your site. You would have to fully delete it, which is not reversible. That is why I asked if you were planning on using it again in the future. We do have a domain only plan, but it would require you delete all content on your site.
