There was a problem in domain renewing. Extended at the reseller by transfer to another registrar.

When checking whois, the domain statuses are as follows:

Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited --
Domain Status: renewPeriod --

this means that a domain registrar change cannot be initiated in the registry and the domain is renewed by the registrar for 5 days.

Other whois fields:

Creation Date: 2012-09-07
Updated Date: 2022-09-07
Registry Expiry Date: 2022-09-07

where Creation Date - Domain reg. date, Updated Date - Date of the last change of information about the domain, Registry Expiry Date - Registration validity period.

Why is the domain status not "Domain Status: ok", and is the domain renewed with the clientTransferProhibited status?
Is it possible that the registrar extended the domain until the Registry Expiry Date and then it will be removed from the registry, and I will stop to be its owner?


If domain extended, is definitely not a transfer.
"renewPeriod" is normal for a recently renewed domain, it changes to OK after a while. It may also turn out that this domain has not been renewed.

Generally, if the registrar was not previously Todaynic, then I think there is nothing to worry about, and if it was, then there is reason for concern, because. the "clientTransferProhibited" status does not allow transferring the domain and the transfer has not started.
