Registrar Aerotek now offers auto-renew feature to all our registrants. With this feature, your orders renew automatically using the balance in your debit account or credit card details that you have chosen to save on our system. If at all there is not sufficient balance in your or your registration service providers account, we will send an email to you for manual renewal.
If we are unable to secure payment on or before the domain renewal date, your domain name will expire.
As early as one day after expiration, your domain name will be deactivated and will display a parking page indicating the domain name has expired, and other services you have associated with the domain name may no longer function.
As early as 36 days after expiration, your domain name may be purchased by a third party. If a third party purchases the domain name during this time, the domain name will not be available for you to renew.
If the domain name has not been renewed by you or purchased by a third party, an expired domain name enters the registry redemption period (as defined by each registry) approximately 40 days following expiration. Certain TLDs enter the registry redemption period sooner than 40 days and those details are available here. We reserve the right to charge you a redemption fee (in additional to the renewal fee) in the event you are able to renew your domain name during this period. The fee charged for redemption varies by TLD and may be found here.
If the domain name completes the registry redemption period, the registry may hold the domain name for a period of five days before releasing it again for general registration.
