About Domains With No Grace Period

2 min read
Your domain may expire either because the auto-renew option was turned off in your account, or because your payment was unsuccessful. In both cases, your domain usually enters the Grace Period. 
Some domain endings do not have a Grace Period, during which your domain is reserved for you after it expires. Instead, these domains enter a Redemption Period of 30 days, giving you one last chance to retrieve your domain (for an additional cost) before becoming publicly available.
