ICANN ERRP Updates and Registration Grace Period changes for domain names

27 Aug 2013

We will apply the following domains policy changes required by ICANN and RGP changes.


1- We usually send many emails alerting a domain name registration is close to the expiry date. This is done from our client area system. After the ICANN required changes, the alerts sent 30 and 7 days before the expiry date and a new alert after the expiry date will be sent by the registrar. This will take effect from 31st of August 2013.

2- The following grace period to renew a domain after expiry will change:

The Renew Grace Period will be revised from 30 to 16 days for all .COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO and .BIZ domain names.

The following TLDs will be changed from 40 to 36 days for .NAME, .CO, .PRO, .MOBI, .US, .ME and .TV domain names. Additionally, the Renew Grace Period for .IN domain names will be revised to 36 days from the current 15 days.

After the 16th/36th day from expiry (depending on tld as listed above), the domain names will be queued for deletion by the system, and no modifications would be possible unless restored.

The change to the 30 > 16 days (.COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO and .BIZ) will take effect from 15th September 2013, the change from 40 to 36 days (.NAME, .CO, .PRO, .MOBI, .US, .ME and .TV) will be with immediate effect as well as .IN.
