The registry operator for .com and .net (including Internationalised Domain Names) has implemented a 30 day Redemption Period. The Redemption Period is applicable for domain names that have expired and is in addition to the grace period that follows the expiry of a .com or .net registration. Domains names that are not renewed within 40 days of their expiry date can now be restored during the Redemption Period that starts 45 days following the expiry date and ends 75 days following the expiry date.

The Redemption Period differs from the Grace Period in several important aspects.

The Redemption Period provides a final opportunity for you to Renew a domain that you did not intend to let expire. However, the process is costly, both in fees and in effort. We discourage you from using the Redemption Period and to renew your domains before expiry or during the grace period when a renewal can be conducted with the registry in real time and for no additional cost.
