Redeeming an Expired Domain

About Domain Renewals

Domains are "leased" to customers for a certain period of time before they expire and are available to the general public again. Renewing a domain allows you to extend the "lease" on the domain and use the domain for a longer period of time. You can renew a domain for up to 10 years at a time.

Auto Renewal will automatically renew a domain between 30 days and 1 day before expiration, assuming the system is successfully able to charge the payment method on file for the renewal. If Sav is unable to charge the payment method, you will be notified via email.

Redemption Eligibility

If your domain is expired, you may have the option to redeem it. A domain is eligible for redemption if:
  • It has been expired for more than 45 days
  • The domain status displayed on the WHOIS is "Redemption Period"
  • It is not currently in expired auction
If your domain is in expired auction, we can't stop the auction but you are welcome to bid on it to get it back. 

How to Redeem Your Domain

If your domain meets the eligibility requirements, contact customer support to request redemption. We will withdraw $80 USD from your default payout method. 
We recommend always renewing your domains before they expire to prevent them from being deleted or auctioned off.
For more information about domain expiration, see our domain expiration timeline.
