What happens after domain names expire?

Once a domain name expires, it goes through many stages before being released to the open market. Gransy s.r.o. sends three renewal emails to the domain name's holder contact prior to the expiration date. Below is a timeline based on all gTLD domain names.

Days before expirationAction
Day 30We will send a first pre-expiration notice with instructions for renewal of the domain name with a standard fee.
Day 7We will send a second pre-expiration notice with instructions for renewal of the domain name with a standard fee.
Days after expirationAction
Day 1We will send a third, post-expiration notice with instructions for renewal of the domain name with a standard fee.
Day 32We will disable DNS resolution for this domain name. Domain can be renewed with a standard fee. We will add the domain name to an closeout expired domain name auction.
Day 40The last day you can renew domain for standard renewal fee before the domain is sent to redemptionPeriod.
Days 41 - 70Domain is already in redemptionPeriod. In order to renew it you have to pay Redemption price which is higher than a standard renewal fee.
Days 71 - 75Domain enters Pending_Delete period. There is nothing anyone can do to save this domain.
Day 76Domain is deleted and in the near future might be available for new registration.

Note: A registrant can renew an expired domain name at no extra cost up to day 40. If they renew an expired domain after 40 days and domain has no winner on closeout expired domain name auction or back order order, they must also pay an $60 redemption fee. The domain name cannot be renewed after day 70.

What is your process for handling expired domain names?

The process we, the registrar, follow for expired domain names depends on your domain name extensions and their renewal settings. Prior to expiration, we will send 2 emails to remind you to renew your domain names.

If you set your domain names to automatic renewal, we will attempt to renew the registrations for you 7 days before expiration date. If we are unable to bill you, we will try every day until the expiration date. We will send you email with every unsuccessful renewal. If domain is still not possible to renew, we will park your expired domain names and will notify you via email again.

If you set your domain names to renew manually and let your domain names to expire, we will park your expired domain names and will notify you via email again the day after expiration.

For expired gTLD domain name registrations, we will hold your domain name for approximately 70 days before cancelling it. Domain name renewal during this period is subject to applicable renewal and redemption fees. For more information, see What happens after domain names expire? and Recovering Expired Domain Names.

Automatic Renewal

If you set the domain name to automatic renewal, when your domain name registration expires, we will take the following steps before canceling it:

  • Seven (7) days before your domain name registration's expiration date, we will attempt to bill you for the domain name renewal. If we cannot renew the domain name (for example, you don't have enough credit), we will notify you about this and will try every day until the expiration date. With unsuccesful renewal attempts we will park your domain name on the domain name registration's expiration date.
  • On the 1st days after expiration, we will email you additional notifications. You can manually renew your domain name.
  • On the 32nd day after expiration, we will put your domain name up for auction with a domain name industry auction service. You can manually renew your domain name, subject to any applicable renewal fee.
  • On the 41st day after expiration your domain name will remain on hold but will become subject to a redemption fee. We will delete your domain name (to redemptionPeriod) and you can still renew with renewal and redemption fee ($60).You can make new order Restore_Domain or you can conact our customer support to renew your domain name, subject to any applicable renewal and redemption fees.
  • On the 76th day we will cancel your domain name. We will delete all services associated with the domain name.

The registry might hold the domain name before releasing it for general registration.

Manual Renewal

In case you did not set your domain names to automatically renew: After your domain name registration expires, we will proceed with the following steps before cancelling it:

  • On the day after your domain name registration's expiration date we will notify you of the domain name registration's expiration and will park your domain name. You can manually renew your domain name.
