How do I renew/restore my domain after it’s expired?


If your domain has expired, don’t worry, you still have time to renew it.  Your domain(s) can be renewed at regular price up to 40 days after the expiry date.  After the standard renewal period, the domain(s) will enter Redemption Grace Period, where you can pay a restore fee to the registry of that extension to get your name back and then pay the standard renewal fee to renew it.  View current restore fees by extension on our pricing page.  The redemption period varies by extension but is usually another 30 days.

If you don’t see your expired domain(s) in your ‘Manage’ page, check your ‘Domain Archive’ in the menu on the left side of the page.  Here you will see any domains which were once in your valid registrations account but have since been removed, either by transfer or expiry.
