My domain was expired yesterday, I renewed it today, but same redirection (This domain is parked, pending renewal, or has expired. Please contact the domain provider with questions.) is active yet. What is the solution? How can I do from serverside or domain panel?

This takes some time in most of the cases. This is because, when a domain expires, the registrar changes the DNS entry to redirect all traffic to the doamin expired page/url. The changed DNS entries are propagated to all lookup servers, including the one that your NIC looks up to. The propagation depends upon the TTL in the servers.
Once you renew the domain after expiry, they restore the DNS entry. But depending upon the TTL of the varios DNS servers, this get reflected in the different server. So this might take some time.
Just wait and watch.
Most domain providers say that the domain will be active in about 24-48 hours, but in my experience it usually takes around 7-8 hours since you made your payment.
So just chill out and relax :D
