Q. What is Redemption Period?

A. "Redemption Period" or ("RGP") is a 30-day timeframe after a registrar has deleted an expired domain such as .com, .net domains. In General * After a domain expires, most registrars have a grace period during which time you can reactivate your domain. * After the grace period, the domain may be deleted from the registrar database and will not appear in your account. * Once deleted, the domain is held for 30 days by the Registry. (Redeption) Once the domain is dropped it becomes available for anyone to purchase just like a new name. Our Grace Period Procedures * When a domain expires through us, it will remain available for reactivation at your regular domain rate for a non-guaranteed 29-day grace period for renewal. There is no guaranteed grace period. Once expired, we may dispose of it at any time according to the registration agreement. Our Redemption Period Process * Once the above grace period ends, it falls into the 30-day holding status called Redemption Period at VeriSign and Pending Delete at PIR.org. * Should you want to retrieve the domain during Redemption, there is a fee of $185.00 plus the cost of the renewal for all TLDs. * Only the previous registrant has the right to request the domain back. All others must wait until the registry drops the domain.
