After Domain Names Expire
Posted by Ruhi S on 24 April 2018 02:03 PM

Once a domain name expires, it goes through many stages before being released to the open market. Sky Development sends 5 renewal emails to the domain account owner prior and after to the expiration date. Below is a timeline based on .com domain names.

Day 1

We make the first of three billing attempts to renew the domain name. If the billing fails, the domain name expires and the domain is parked. The domain name can be renewed by the registrant at no extra cost. Any website or email services associated with the domain name may be interrupted.

Day 4 We make the second billing attempt. The domain name can still be renewed by the registrant at no extra cost.
Day 7 We make the third and final attempt to renew the domain name. The domain name can still be renewable by the registrant for the cost of a one-year renewal plus a nominal late fee.
Day 20 The domain name can be renewed by the registrant for the cost of a one-year renewal plus an $80 approx redemption fee.
Day 25 We add the domain name to an expired domain name auction. The domain name can still be renewable by the registrant if available for the cost of a one-year renewal plus an $80 approx redemption fee.
Day 31 The domain may no longer be redeemed.
Day 42 We return the domain name to the registry. The registry may hold the domain before releasing it for general registration.
