    Redemption Period for a Domain

    * " What is the Redemption Period? "
    -: If you haven't yet heard about the redemption period, it's a "grace period" of up to 30 days that begins once a domain registrar deletes a domain name. This deletion normally occurs sometime within the first 45 days after a name expires without being renewed.

    Instead of actually being deleted and re-available for registration within a few days, what happens is the central VeriSign registry holds the name in a new "REDEMPTIONPERIOD" status. The grace period basically gives the original domain owner a chance to renew their domain name.

    After the Expired period, a domain goes into a second stage called the redemption (or On Hold) period. For 30 days, the original domain owner still has the option to renew the domain name.

    Thanks for the info, I think there would be heavy "restoration fee" for second stage - On Hold period?

      The restoration charges for a domain from the " Hold " status differs for different TLD's.

          When you want to renew a domain which is in Redemption period, you have to pay the Redemption Fees (also called Redemption Grace Period) + the regular renewal charges for the domain.

          The amount of redemptionl fees is always very very high. ENOM charges a hefty $160.00 for the same. Network Solutions is charging $150.00 currently. GoDaddy is a bit more modest at $80.00

          In the case of 123-reg.co.uk the charge is a massive £100 ($200) :frown:

                    I wonder if anyone can help with this one.

                    One of the domain names we use has gone into redemption. Basically, the name was registered with someone who helped set up our forum in the very early stages. However, over the years they have sold their car and moved on. We have since lost contact and so were unable to renew the domain when it came up for renewal.

                    Therefore, the domain is now in it's redemption period. I have been told I have 2 basic options:

                    1. Check every day and try to renew it - hoping a competing forum doesn't grab it
                    2. Create an account with someone such as Domain name auctions to purchase quality expired and deleting names who will grab the domain at the earliest opportunity for a minimum bid of $59

                    Has anyone got experience of Domain name auctions to purchase quality expired and deleting names or any other similar sites? And is there a 3rd option I am not aware of?

                    Thanks folks,

                    Paul

                      Hi Paul,

                      You will never get your domain name back if you wait for long time. Domains are auctioned once they are out of redemption period and you will need to pay minimum $500 to get your domain name back. You should pay $160 now and get the domain back, else you will loose your domain name.

                        Thanks for the advice. Where does the $160 figure come from? Is there somewhere else I can buy it back?

                        TBH, it's not a great domain name, the only real chance of us losing it is if our competitors notice it's on redemption and if they chose to grab it before us. It's not the main one we use, just an old one that was used in the past so there may be some links around to it.

                        Thanks again, Paul

                          The cost of Redemption is generally $160. However it may vary depending on the registrar, some of them will charge more than this thinking you might not know about the actual cost.

                          If you should renew the domain now, only depends on how much the domain is worth to you. If you want to keep it out of others hands it is strongly recommended you pay the redemption cost and get back the domain

                          You can keep tracking it every day but remember you never know who else might be interested in it as well.

                          I will personally recommend paying the redemption cost now rather than later paying a huge amount or may be just loosing the domain name.

                            Thanks again for your help. I might be being a bit thick here but am I able to get the domain out of redemption if I am 'not the owner'. The domain is registered to someone who has left our club and not anyone on the Committee.

                              if you're willing to spend a little to get your domain back you'll have to Backorder your domain as soon as possible.. you'll have some chance of re registering your domain instead of someone else picking it up.
