Whenever your domain expires, it will stop working, and your website and email services will be down, so you may want to renew it as soon as possible.
Depending on the TLD of the domain, it may enter to grace period or redemption period. You can find the status by going to the Domains dashboard. If it's in grace period, hovering over this status will display how much time is left before the domain enters redemption:
In this case, all you need to do is click on the Renew now button to proceed with the domain renewal 😊
If the domain is in redemption period, it will be shown in the status area:
To renew your domain from redemption, you will need to pay an additional fee – just contact our Customer Success team and we will help you with this process.
What Happens if the Domain Is Not Renewed After Redemption Period?
If your domain completes the Redemption Period and goes to Pending Deletion, it will no longer be possible to renew it. Alternatively, you can wait for it to become available and purchase it as a new domain.
Keep in mind that as soon as a domain name is available, it can be purchased by anyone.
Some TLDs do not have a grace period and go straight to redemption after expiration. For this reason, we recommend enabling auto-renewal
The redemption fee varies depending on the domain's TLD
