What is Domain Redemption?
A domain typically enters the redemption period about 30 days after its expiration date if it is not renewed or purchased by a 3rd party.
The redemption period usually lasts for 30 days until the domain enters Pending Deletion status.
Important: When your domain is in Redemption status, you may still redeem the domain by paying a redemption fee in addition to the normal domain renewal rate. The redemption fee may be up to USD 160.00, depending on your registrar. Please contact us to redeem your domain.
