I forgot to renew my domain name what happens now? Open


If you don't renew your domain then web site or email services based on the domain will not work because the domain will no longer be active.

When a gTLD name expires, there is a grace period of 40 days* where the domain can be renewed without additional charges.

After the grace period, an expired domain name may enter Redemption status.

Recovering my domain

Once the domain has lapsed from your account or entered Redemption status, you will need to contact our Sales team as it will need to be manually restored. Please note that once your domain has entered Redemption status, there is an additional fee of £99 +VAT (if applicable) on top of the renewal fee.

We strongly recommend that you renew your domain names in advance of expiry through your control panel. Remember, you can renew most domains for up to 10 years to help ensure you do not incur downtime or additional costs for your domain, site and email.

*Legacy domains may have a different time scale before entering Redemption status.
