Domain Redemption Period

Modified on Sun, 29 Jan 2023 at 12:41 PM

The Domain Redemption Period is a 30-day, Registry-imposed period that occurs when a domain name has expired and the auto-renew (or grace period) has passed.


A domain is considered deleted at this point but the Redemption period provides the registrant (domain owner) one last chance to recover and renew the domain before being released and potentially re-registered by someone else.


Any website or email services associated with a domain name that has gone into the Redemption period will stop working because the DNS servers will no longer resolve the domain.


There is an additional fee associated with renewing a domain that is in the Redemption Period. If Webhero is where you registered your domain please feel free to contact us to recover and renew your domain back before it is deleted.
