We make every effort possible to help ensure you don’t lose the domains you want to keep, which includes several notifications.
We will send out a total of four email reminders to renew your domain. This begins about 45 days before the expirtation date of your domain. We’ll send additional reminders 25 days before and then 5 days before the domain expires. Finally, we’ll send another email 3 days after your domain has expired.
If at this point we still can not secure a payment for the domain, your domain will expire. At this point your page will be deactivated and a ‘parking’ page will be put up, which indicates that the domain is no longer active. Other services you have with your domain may also stop functioning.
As soon as 31 days after the expiration date, your domain may be auctioned, sold, deleted or otherwise disposed of. If a third party purchases the domain name at any point after the 31 days, it will NOT be available for you to reactivate.
As early as 45 days after the date of expiration, if your domain has not yet been purchased by any third parties, it will enter a 60 day redemption grace period. If you choose to renew your domain name at any point during this holding period (and it has not already been purchased by a third party) you may be charged a $200 reactivation fee (plus the annual renewal fees).
If the redemption period ends without being renewed or purchased by a third party the domain name will be held for five days, at which point it will be deleted from our system and released back for general registration.
