Renewing domains in the grace and redemption periods

Updated over a week ago

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 the grace period or redemption period. You can find the status by going to the Domains section of hPanel.

Renew a Domain in the Grace Period

If your domain is in the grace period, you hover on the status to display the time 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 😊

Some TLDs do not have a grace period and go straight to redemption after expiration. For this reason, we recommend enabling auto-renewal 💡

Renew a Domain in the Redemption Period

If the domain is in the redemption period, it will be indicated in the status area. To renew, click the Restore button and complete the payment, which covers both the renewal and the additional redemption fee:

After the payment is applied, your domain will be redeemed from redemption and renewed. Allow up to 24 hours for it to be fully reactivated. If your domain is still inactive after that time, get in touch with our team, and we will help you!

In case the Restore button is not available, contact our Customer Success team to check the available alternatives for your domain.

Is the Domain Renewable After the 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.
