  • Life Cycle of a Domain Name

    Domain names are much alike the human beings. They also have a life cycle. If you own a domain name, you should have a full fledged information on how the cycle works. This will help you to secure your name and renew it within the stipulated period. On the contrary, if your name expires it will help you to keep a track on it's availability.

    A gTLD domain name goes through the following stages if not renewed before the expiry date :

    Grace Period : When a domain name expires, it enters the Grace Period wherein one can renew the domain name at a normal renewal cost. Your website and emails stop working once the domain name enters the Grace Period. It lasts for 45 days. Once a domain is renewed in this phase, it may take a few hours before the website and emails are functional again. Yes, it does takes a few hours for DNS propagation after renewal.

    Redemption Grace Period : If a domain name isn't renewed in the Grace Period (within 45 days), it will enter the Redemption Grace Period on the 46th day from the date of expiry.. In order to reinstate your domain name, you will have to pay a non-refundable restoration fee along with the one year domain renewal charges. The charges differ with every registrar. The Redemption Grace Period lasts for 30 days.

    Pending Delete Status : If you fail to reinstate the domain name during the Redemption Period, your domain name will enter the Pending Delete Status after 75 days from the date of expiry. The domain name will be placed in this status for 5 days. Once this period is over, the domain name will be deleted from the Registry and would be made available for General Availability. Once it's available, you will be able to register it at the normal registration charges.
