Every PL domain has a set expiration date, i.e. the date when it expires based on the length of the prepaid period. If you want to continue using your domain, you’ll need to renew it by the expiration date.
If you do not renew the PL domain, the domain is excluded from the DNS zone on the day of expiration and as a result becomes unavailable. The domain can still be renewed up to 30 days after expiration. If the domain is renewed within 30 days of expiration, the expiration date will be extended and the domain will be reactivated in DNS. Otherwise, the domain is deleted from the registry on the 30th day after expiration and will be available for registration by anyone.
Unless otherwise set for services, our system automatically creates an extension order for all domains 30 days before their expiration and sends a payment request to the customer by e-mail.
This can be changed, as described in the Setting up the Expiration and Renewal of Services article.
Manual Domain Renewals
Important warning: PL domains can be extended only once per given accounting period. Therefore, if the domain is registered on 1 January 2016 for one year, it is possible to renew the domain once in the accounting period of 1 January 2016 – 1 January 2017. If the renewal takes place immediately on the day of registration (i.e. 1.1.2016), further renewal is possible after the expiry of the given invoicing period, i.e. 2.1.2017.
Domains can be manually extended in the customer administration in the detail of a specific domain, in the left menu, using Domain Renewal link. In the form, select the number of years for which you wish to renew it. You can pay for the renewal immediately from your credit account (if you use it and have enough credit) or a request for payment will be created and sent by e-mail.
You can also carry out bulk domain renewals in the customer administration or use APIs to control domains.
