1.6 Renew a Domain Name

During the registration or transfer process of a Domain, or at a later stage, you can activate the "Automatic Renewal" option. This option allows you to renew the service automatically in the days before the deadline. If the "Automatic renewal" option has not been activated the customer will need to activate it in order to renew the service within the periods indicated below. The automatic renewal will renew the Whois Privacy service only if this service is active on the expiry date.

There are three stages in which you can renew the Domain:
  Duration Status Renewal Status
Domain Validity 12 months online permitted taken
Deactivation Period from 0 to +40 days
based on the TLD
offline permitted taken
Redemption Period from +30 to +40 days
based on the TLD
offline permitted taken
Domain expired   offline not permitted free
Deactivation Period: starts on the expiry date of the annual term.
Redemption Period: starts at the end of the Deactivation Period.
PLEASE NOTE: we remind you that after the Redemption Period the Domain will become available and can therefore be registered by anyone.
