Because many registries require additional processing for domain renewals, PLEASE ALLOW ENOUGH TIME FOR US TO PROCESS YOUR RENEWAL. We are not liable for your failure to pay the renewal fees by the due date and you may incur additional fees or risk losing your domain name for your failure to do so. For additional information on the renewal and redemption process, please refer to our terms and conditions.
Email Notices for Expiring Domains
Expiration notices are sent to the primary email address on file 90 days, 60 days, 30 days, 15 days, 5 days, and 1 day prior to the domain expiration date.
Renewing an Expired Domain Name
Each gTLD and ccTLD has different procedures for recovering expired domain names (that’s like 3,000+ procedures), so as not to bore you with each individual domain extension recovery process we’ll break down a few examples and if you have a question about your specific domain name drop us a message via a support ticket within your account.
.MU domains for the country Mauritius are also trending as a domain hack for music and stand out in the ccTLD renewal policies with the steep redemption price of $2,000 USD (yikes- no one wants to pay that fee)!
.AT domains target an Austrian market. They allow you to choose whether you want to delete the domain shortly after the expiration date or transfer the domain back to .AT registry where they charge a redemption fee directly (which can be quite high).
.DE domains represent Germany and are the most registered country domain in existence. .DE domains automatically go back to the registry on the expiration date. For 30 days, the domain can be restored via your signature on a registry form, which we provide. Once the registry confirms the form has been filled out to their standards, the domain is transferred back to us at 101domain.
.SM domains for San Marino, along with a few other extensions must be requested to be deleted if you do not wish to renew. The deletion means, that if you pay late, the domain will have to be re-registered as a brand-new domain name. This will include providing all documents and signing all of the forms from the beginning.
For most gTLDs (but not all) our policy is that new domains have a 40-day Grace Period in which a domain name can be renewed without incurring an additional fee. It’s important to note however that your domain will no longer resolve on the day it expires. After the 40-day grace period, there is a 30-day Redemption Period in which you can renew your domain name for an additional $150 USD.
If you happen to slip up, we’ll do everything we can do to bail you out and help recover your domains. There are ways to get your domain name back if they expire, but the best way to avoid headaches and fees in the future is to turn on the auto-renew function in your account. No matter how many warning notifications we give of impending domain renewal dates, sometimes things fall through the cracks and people forget to renew their domains in time. We are human, we get it! Auto-renew is the only sure fire way to know your domain name will not expire.
