What happens when a domain approaches its expiry date? cont Print

  • domains
  • 20

To avoid the problem of your domain expiring we will contact you 1 month before expiry with an advisory email that will include instructions on renewal and will be sent to your preferred email address, another reminder will be sent 1 week before expiry.

3 days after expiry a further email is sent, again this will include instructions on renewing your domain, as this is after expiry you will also have noticed by this point that the website is no longer loading.

We strongly recommend that all customers renew their domains in advance of the expiry date to ensure continuous service, and to avoid any post-expiry redemption fees.

A TLD (top-level domain) is the last part of a domain name. For example, if your domain name is "examplecustomerwebsite.com", your top-level domain is ".com". Depending on the TLD, once a domain expires there is often a grace period. During this grace period the domain will be suspended and any services associated with it will be unavailable, but you will be able to renew the domain at the normal renewal cost by following the renewals process as dictated on the reminder emails.


After the grace period runs out, there is sometimes a redemption period available. During the redemption period, you will still be able to renew the domain, but the TLD registries often impose a redemption fee. You will need to pay this redemption fee in addition to the normal renewal cost.

Please note that redemption fees are imposed by the TLD registries, and we pass them on as-is. File Sanctuary does not add any additiional charges to redemption fees, but we are also unable to waive them as they are not a charge imposed by us.

Below is a table indicating the redemption price, grace period and redemption period for all applicable TLDs.
