Domain Name Deletion & Auto-Renewal Policy
We currently offer an auto-renew feature. You can check whether your domain has auto-renew
enabled by logging into your domain management control panel. You must also have a valid
credit card stored in your domain management control panel for the auto-renew feature to work.
If the auto-renew is not successful then you need to renew your domain name from your domain
management control panel to prevent it from being expired.
Domain Name Deletion
If you DO NOT renew the domain name before the registration expiration date, your domain
name will expire. As early as one day after expiration, your domain name will be deactivated
and will display a parking page indicating the domain name has expired, and other services you
have associated with the domain name may no longer function.
As early as 36 days after expiration, your domain name may be purchased by a third party. If a
third party purchases the domain name during this time, the domain name will not be available
for you to renew.
If the domain name has not been renewed by you or purchased by a third party, an expired
domain name enters the registry redemption period (as defined by each registry)
approximately 40 days following expiration. Certain TLDs enter the registry redemption period
sooner than 40 days and those details are available here. We reserve the right to charge you a
redemption fee (in additional to the renewal fee) in the event you are able to renew your
domain name during this period. The fee charged for redemption varies by TLD and may be
If the domain name completes the registry redemption period, the registry may hold the
domain name for a period of five days before releasing it again for general registration.
