Domain name expiry / domain name put on parking page

Whenever a particular domain name is not renewed till the Expiry Date, it would slip into the Renewal Grace Period. All such domain names would be put on a temporary commercial Parking Page, which would indicate that the domain name has expired. During this period, any website and mails associated with the domain name would stop working.

  • The above Renewal Grace Periods are applicable if your domain name is expiring today.

  • If your domain name has already expired, these values may have changed since. Contact our Support Team to confirm the Renewal Grace Period for your domain name.

  • A .EU domain name does not have any Renewal Grace Period. It will expire on the second last day of the month, one year from the date of its Registration/Ownership Identity Modification/Move/Transfer/Restoration. The domain name will be deleted on the same day, if not renewed.


    If you register for one year on 15 April, 2009, it will expire on 29 April, 2010 and will be deleted on the same day, if not renewed.

    If the domain name's Ownership Identity is modified or it is moved/transferred/restored on 20 December, 2009, it will expire on 30 December, 2010 and will be deleted on the same day, if not renewed.

  • You may renew your .UK domain name anytime from 6 months before its Expiry, upto 90 days after its Expiry. If you do not renew your domain name within 90 days after its Expiry, it would be automatically deleted by the Registry.

    It is important to note that there is no concept of a Redemption Grace Period in case of a .UK domain name.

  • A .NAME domain name will have a Renewal Grace Period of 40 days. If you do not renew the domain name in the Renewal Grace Period, then the domain name would be deleted and made available for Registration as a fresh domain name by the Registry post a Pending Delete period of 5 days, during which the domain name cannot be redeemed.

  • CentralNic** domain names include:


  • A .NZ domain name will not have any Renewal Grace Period. It will be deleted upon Expiry, if not renewed.


    If you register for one year on 15 December, 2009, it will be deleted, if not renewed until 15 December, 2010.

When a domain name expires, the Registry auto-renews it and locks our funds for the same. However, the Auto-Renewal action is not immediate, but is queued up for execution. This often takes up to 48 hours to complete.


With the exception of the following, all Domains are Auto-Renewed by their respective Registry upon Expiry:

  • .BIZ

  • .US

  • .UK

  • .EU

  • .WS

  • CentralNic** domain names

  • .TEL

  • .NZ

  • .CO

  • .WEB.IN

In case of an auto-renewed domain name, the Registry Whois displays the Expiry Date one year ahead of the actual date on which the domain name has already expired.

Now, if you were to add another Renewal action, the domain name would get renewed for an additional year, even though you do not wish it to get renewed for any more years than you requested.


To avoid this situation, the Parking Action is on purpose left incomplete. The domain name would bear the following status at this stage:

Action Requested: Parking of

Status of the action: Awaiting update at Registry

Once the execution is completed at the Registry, our System will complete the Parking Action and readily renew your domain name.

After you have renewed the domain name, it would take around 24-48 hours for DNS Propagation to complete Worldwide and the actual website to start resolving properly and mails to be received on the domain name.


During this DNS Propagation period, your website may intermittently revert to the Parking Page and then change again to your actual website, depending on how ISP caches refresh. However, if you have already renewed your domain name, do not renew your domain name again. The Parking Page will automatically get removed as soon as the DNS propagation completes.

Once a domain name has expired, it will go to into Renewal Grace Period, where you can renew this domain name at normal costs. If you do not renew the domain name in the Renewal Grace Period, then the domain name would be deleted and the domain name will go into Redemption Grace Period generally (provided there is no backorder for this domain name) and you would get a chance to redeem it.
