Domain Renewal

    What happens after my domain names expire

            After domain name expiration, you have an opportunity to reclaim that domain name.

Here at ConfirmHost, we give you both a Renewal Grace and Redemption Grace Periods (exceptions apply).

  1. The Renewal Grace Period begins just after the domain name’s expiration. During this Renewal Grace Period, you can reclaim your expired domain name for the standard domain name purchase price.
  2. The Redemption Grace Period begins after the end of the Renewal Grace Period. During the Redemption Grace Period, you can reclaim your expired domain name for the standard domain purchase price PLUS a redemption fee. (Redemption fees vary) After the Redemption Grace Period, you will not be able to renew your domain name.

Duration of Renewal Grace and Redemption Grace Periods for different domain extensions are as follows:
