Domain Registrar Dynadot Reduces its Renewal Grace Period

Domain name registrar Dynadot has recently announced a change in its domain renewal policy for many TLDs (Top-Level Domains) including .com, .net, .org and many new extensions. Normally, after a registered domain expires, it falls under a grace period where it can be renewed by the registrant at its regular price.

As of 15 April 2017, Dynadot will reduce its grace period from 40 days to 30 days during which the domain can be renewed at the same price. For the next 10 days, renewal will be possible for a late renewal fee of $10 in addition to the domain’s price.

As usual, Dynadot will continue to email renewal notices 60 days prior to the domain’s expiration date. That’s why it’s useful to provide a valid email address. If you intend to keep the domain anyway, you can change your settings to automatic renewal.

If you fail to renew during the grace period, the domain will be up for deletion and is no longer controlled by Dynadot. You can still reclaim your domain during the 30-day redemption period but the process is more difficult and expensive.
