What Happens When A Domain Name Is Not Renewed
What happens when a Domain Name is not renewed and it expires?
When a domain is not renewed before its expiry date, it enters a grace period. Grace period lasts between 0 to 30 days for local domains, and international domains 0 to 21 days at this point there no additional charges for renewal.
When the grace period ends, the domain enters a redemption period, this is usually the last chance to renew a domain, if it’s not renewed the domain is made available for registration. A domain can be renewed while a redemption period but there is a redemption fee plus the renewal cost for a domain.
