What happens if I don't renew my Domain?

If all the auto renewal attempts fail and you do not manually renew your domain name by the expiration date, the domain name will go into the renewal grace period, which lasts 30 days. If it is a gTLD domain name, after this initial grace period it will automatically go into a status called the Redemption Period. If the grace period ends without being manually renewed and it is a ccTLD domain name, the registry will place it directly into the Pending Delete status.

Any domain name that has been in the Pending Delete status for more than 5 calendar days will be deleted by the registry, making it available for anyone to register.

We strongly suggest renewing for the longest term or setting up Auto Renewal on your domain name to ensure that it does not expire.
