Registrar Hold

Modified on Tue, 31 Jan 2023 at 09:38 AM

The registrar of a domain may set a domain to registrar hold status for a number of reasons.

You can use Whois to locate the current registrar of your domain. The registrar be able to give specific details on why the domain is being held. 

The domain can not be modified or transferred when in this status. The registrar of the domain is the only one that can remove the REGISTRAR-HOLD status from the domain. 

DNS and zone files are not active for a domain when in this hold status. If you fail to reactivate the domain, then it may go into a Domain Redemption where there will be an additional charge to renew the domain.
