Understanding Domain Name Expiry and Display of a Parking Page
Whenever a particular domain name is not Renewed till the Expiry Date, it would slip into the Renewal Grace Period. All such domain names would be put on a temporary commercial Parking Page, which would indicate that the domain name has expired. During this period, any website and mails associated with the domain name would stop working.
Renewal Grace Period of Domains
|TLD (Domain Name Extension)||Renewal Grace Period (Days)|
|CentralNic domain names||0|
The above Renewal Grace Periods are applicable if your domain name is expiring today.
If your domain name has already expired, these values may have changed since. Contact our Support Team at http://www.xpcl.com to confirm the Renewal Grace Period for your domain name.
A .CO domain name (Anchor: corules) will continue to resolve to the actual website during the initial 5 days of the Renewal Grace Period. It would then be put on a temporary commercial Parking Page for the remainder of the Renewal Grace Period.
A .DE domain name will Expire on the 5th last day of the Expiry month, upon Registration, Renewal or Transfer.
If yourdomain.de is registered on January 1, 2011, it's Expiry Date becomes January 27, 2012 as the Registration term is 1 year and the 5th last day of January 2012 is January 27.
If yourdomain.de is registered on January 31, 2011, it's Expiry Date becomes January 27, 2012 as the Registration term is 1 year and the 5th last day of January 2012 is January 27.
you will no longer be able to manage your .DE domain name with Site Kreation.
your .DE domain name will be transferred directly under the .DE Registry (DENIC). This process is called Domain Transit.
Once your domain name has Transited to DENIC, the Registrant contact will receive instructions via postal mail from DENIC, for managing your .DE domain name with them.
the .ES Registry would email the Admin Contact listed in the Whois of the domain name, that the domain name has not yet been Renewed and if needed, the domain name owner may transfer their domain name under the .ES Registry and then Renew this domain name with them.
if the .ES domain name is not Renewed until 9 days, the domain name would get Deleted and would immediately be available for Registration.
A .EU domain name (Anchor: eurules) does not have any Renewal Grace Period. It will expire on the second last day of the month the domain name is expiring on. The domain name will be Deleted on the same day, if not Renewed.
If you register yourdomainname.eu for 5 years on 15 April, 2009, it will expire on 29 April, 2014 and will be Deleted on the same day, if not Renewed.
If the domain name's Ownership Identity is modified or it is Moved/Transferred/Restored on 20 December, 2009, it will expire on 29 April, 2015 and will be Deleted on the same day, if not Renewed.Additional Information
A .NL domain name can be Renewed for only 1 year.
You can not Renew your .NL domain name until 60 days prior to it's Expiry.
There is no Renewal Grace Period for a .NL domain name. It would be Deleted upon Expiry and placed under Pending Delete Restorable status.
A .RU domain name can be Renewed for only 1 year.
You can not Renew your .RU domain name until 60 days prior to it's Expiry.
if the .RU domain name is not Renewed until 30 days after Expiry, the domain name would get Deleted and would immediately be available for Registration.
You may renew your .UK domain name (Anchor: ukrules) anytime from 6 months before its Expiry, upto 90 days after its Expiry. If you do not renew your domain name within 90 days after its Expiry, it would be automatically Deleted by the Registry.
It is important to note that there is no concept of a Redemption Grace Period in case of a .UK domain name.
When a domain name expires, the Registry auto-renews (Anchor: autorenew) it for a period of 1 year and locks our funds for the same. However, the Auto-Renewal action is not immediate, but is queued up for execution. This often takes upto 48 hours to complete.Auto-Renewal
With the exception of the following, all domain names are Auto-Renewed by their respective Registry upon Expiry:
CentralNic Domain Names 2
In case of an Auto-Renewed domain name, the Registry Whois displays the Expiry Date one year ahead of the actual date on which the domain name has already expired.
Now, if you were to add another Renewal action, the domain name would get Renewed for an additional year, even though you do not wish it to get Renewed for any more years than you requested.
To avoid this situation, the system's Parking action is on purpose left incomplete. The domain name would bear the following status at this stage:
Action Requested: Parking of <domain name>
Status of the action: Awaiting update at Registry
Once the execution is completed at the Registry, the system will complete the Parking action and renew the domain name.
After you have Renewed the domain name, it would take around 24-48 hours for DNS Propagation to complete Worldwide and the actual website to start resolving properly and mails to be received on the domain name.DNS Propagation
During this DNS Propagation period, your website may intermittently revert to the Parking Page and then change again to your actual website, depending on how ISP caches are refreshed. However, if you have already Renewed your domain name, do not renew your domain name again. The Parking Page will automatically get removed as soon as the DNS propagation completes.
Once a domain name has expired, it will go to into Renewal Grace Period, where you can renew this domain name at normal costs. If you do not renew the domain name within the Renewal Grace Period, then it would be queued for deletion at the end of the Renewal Grace Period and subsequently Deleted. The domain name will then go into Redemption Grace Period generally (provided there is no backorder for this domain name). In this status you would get another chance to redeem it. 3
