What is redemption period?
Redemption period is an additional 30 days grace which is allowed on com/net/org domains. It was instigated by ICANN in order to allow clients a little more time to renew their name. However, BE WARNED. To renew a domain whilst in redemption period via (aq) is chargeable at £200 + vat IN ADDITION to the renewal fee.
This is because it is a time and admin intensive process to renew a domain when it is overdue.
The alternative, although more risky, is to wait until the domain becomes available again and then re-register it.
If you have a domain you wish to extract from redemption period, please raise a support ticket and we will raise the necessary invoice.
