Domain names

Domain name lifecycle

.com, .net, .org etc domains:

The following image depicts the lifetime of a .com .net or .org domain (Click to enlarge)

Once a domain enters the ‘Redemption Period’ it will cost more to renew it. Enom’s redemption charge is $250 + 1 year of renewal

This is why it is important to pay invoices on or before their due date.

.ie domains

Once your .ie domain expires it is suspended 41 days after its expiry date and completely purged 70 days later making it available for anyone to register. There is no redemption period associated with .ie domains.

.eu domains:

The life cycle is a little different in that there is no grace period after the domains expiry date, it goes directly into redemption three days BEFORE the expirey date during which there is an additional fee set to retrieve the domain.

Note: Redemption fees are not charged by but by ENOM the domain registrars.
