Domain Name Deletion

Once a domain name has Expired, it will go to into Renewal Grace Period, where you can Renew this domain name at normal costs. This Renewal Grace Period would be for 40* days (for most domain name extensions). If you do not Renew the domain name in the Renewal Grace Period, then the domain name would be Deleted and the domain name (excluding a .UK, .WS and .NAME domain name) will go into Redemption Grace Period.


However, should there be no back-order for the domain name, you would still have the option to Redeem it.

IMPORTANT*
  1. The concept of Renewal Grace Period for a .EU domain name is slightly different. Every .EU domain name will Expire exactly 1 year from the date of Registration (since the maximum length of registration is only a year). However, the Renewal Grace Period will be only till the the second last day of the expiring month (penultimate day of the month), post which the domain name will be deleted. Thus, different .EU domain names may have different Renewal Grace Periods. Lets take a couple of examples to demonstrate this -
     
    1. abc.eu gets Registered on 24 Jul, 2006. This domain name will Expire on 24 Jul, 2007. If the domain name is not Renewed until the Deletion date, it will be Deleted from our System on 30 Jul, 2007 (since this is the second last day of the expiring month). This domain name will have a Renewal Grace period of 6 days. It will slip into Redemption Grace Period after 31 Jul, 2007.
       
    2. pqr.eu gets Registered on 27 Jul, 2006. This domain name will Expire on 27 Jul, 2007. If the domain name is not Renewed until the Deletion date, it will be Deleted from our System on 30 Jul, 2007 (since this is the second last day of the expiring month). This domain name will have a Renewal Grace period of 3 days. It will slip into Redemption Grace Period post 31 Jul, 2007.
       
    3. xyz.eu gets Registered on 31 Jul, 2006 and will Expire on 31 Jul, 2007. If the domain name is not Renewed until the Deletion date, it will be Deleted from our System on 30 Jul, 2007 (since this is the second last day of the expiring month) and will not have any Renewal Grace Period. It will slip into Redemption Grace Period post 31 Jul, 2007.
       
  2. .INFO domain names will have a 15 day Renewal Grace Period. If you do not Renew the domain name in the Renewal Grace Period, then the domain name would be Deleted and the domain name will go into Redemption Grace Period.
     
  3. Renewal Grace Period in a .UK domain name is quite different from other extensions. Any website/emails associated with the domain name will stop resolving once your .UK domain name Expires.

    You may Renew your .UK domain name anytime from 6 months before its Expiry, up to 97 days after its expiry. If you do not Renew your domain name within 97 days after its Expiry, it would be automatically Deleted by the Registry.

    It is important to note that there is no concept of a Redemption Grace Period in case of a .UK domain name.
     
  4. A .WS domain name will have a Renewal Grace Period of 30 days. If you do not Renew the domain name in the Renewal Grace Period, then the domain name would be Deleted and made available for Registration as a fresh domain name by the Registry. 
     
  5. Third Level .COM/.NET/.ORG domain names under the extensions -

    .EU.COM, .GB.COM, .AE.ORG, .KR.COM, .US.COM, .QC.COM, .DE.COM, .GB.NET, .NO.COM, .HU.COM, .JPN.COM, .UY.COM, .ZA.COM, .BR.COM, .CN.COM,
    .SA.COM, .SE.COM, .SE.NET, .UK.COM, .UK.NET, .RU.COM

    will have a Renewal Grace Period of 5 days. If you do not Renew the domain name in the Renewal Grace Period, then the domain name would be Deleted and the domain name will go into Redemption Grace Period.
     
  6. A .NAME domain name will have a Renewal Grace Period of 40 days. If you do not Renew the domain name in the Renewal Grace Period, then the domain name would be Deleted and made available for Registration as a fresh domain name by the Registry post a Pending Delete period of 5 days, during which the domain name cannot be Redeemed.
