I am waiting for a domain to be released in the international domain zone. Currently, the status of the domain is redemptionPeriod which means it will be deleted after 30 days as stated by Icann. The question is, when does the report confirming the start of the redemptionPeriod come out?


When a domain enters redemptionPeriod status, it means that the deletion process has begun and the registrar has 30 days to stop the deletion. During this period, changes to the domain data are prohibited and the domain is not delegated. However, the registrar can still restore the domain at a cost that is usually five times the registration price.

If the domain is not restored during the redemptionPeriod, it then moves into a pendingDelete status for an additional 5 days. At this point, restoration is no longer possible and the domain will be released. In total, it takes 35 days from the start of redemptionPeriod for the domain to be released.

Dealing with domain deletions and restoration can be tricky and requires a good understanding of the regulations. It's important to be aware of the costs involved in restoring a domain during the redemptionPeriod and to act quickly to avoid losing the domain altogether.


Can you tell me where you are applying to release the domain name in the Would you mind sharing it with me?

When it comes to domain names, it can be useful to share information and insights with others who have experience in the field. This can help you make more informed decisions and potentially avoid any issues that may arise during the process. Additionally, building connections and networking is always helpful in any industry.


If a domain registration expires, the current owner can renew it for the usual price or an increased price, depending on the domain's stage. These price increases are established by international registrars and must be taken into consideration. This is why renewing a domain on time in the international zone is crucially important.

To avoid forgetting to renew your domain, you can enable the Auto-Renewal option. It's also worth noting that different international zones have their own rules and peculiarities when it comes to domain renewal. Registrars may set additional limited operation periods or special procedures for renewal. Being aware of these differences can save you time and money in the long run.

Renewing a domain may seem like a minor task, but it's essential for maintaining your online presence. Even a short lapse in registration can result in losing the domain altogether or an increase in renewal costs. By staying informed and taking steps to renew on time, you can ensure a smooth and uninterrupted online experience.


The report confirming the start of the redemptionPeriod is typically released shortly after the domain has entered that status. The exact timing can vary depending on the registrar and their processes, but it is usually within a few days or weeks of the domain entering redemptionPeriod. It's recommended to check with your specific registrar or keep an eye on their communications and updates for more accurate information.

The redemptionPeriod is a status in the domain name lifecycle that occurs after a domain has expired but before it is released back for registration. During this period, the original registrant has the opportunity to redeem their domain by paying a fee to restore it.

The redemptionPeriod typically lasts for a fixed duration, commonly around 30 days, although it can vary depending on the registrar's policies. During this time, the domain is held in a state where it cannot be registered by anyone else. This gives the previous owner a grace period to reclaim their domain.

After the redemptionPeriod ends, the domain typically moves into the pendingDelete status. Once in this status, the domain will no longer be available for restoration, and it will eventually be released and made available for registration by the public.

It is important to note that the specific timing and procedures related to the redemptionPeriod may vary depending on the registrar and the top-level domain (TLD) of the domain in question. It's best to contact your domain registrar directly for accurate information regarding the status and potential restoration
