Domain Expiration and Renewal


A reminder email will be sent to your email address when your domain name approaches its expiration date.

Our system will automatically send this reminder email to you near the date of expiry. Note that emails will only be sent to the account owner, not the domain owner.

The first domain expiration reminder email will be sent 45 days prior to the expiration date. After that, a new reminder will be sent every week until the final week before expiration.

In that final week before your domain’s expiration date, daily reminder emails will be sent.

When your domain name has finally reached its expiration date, it will be deactivated and you will no longer be able to access it.


What happens after my Domain expires?

A grace period will begin and during this time and you will have the chance to renew your domain name. You will have a 40-day grace period in which to renew your global TLD at normal price.

After this initial grace period, a 30-day redemption period will begin and the domain price will be higher than normal. This is your last chance for renewal.

Finally, the domain will enter a 5-day pending state awaiting deletion; during this time, you cannot restore your domain and it will be available for registration to the public.

Bear in mind that this grace period will differ depending on which type of domain and/or Registry you have. Please be aware of how much time you will have within this grace period to renew your own domain.

After this grace period ends, your domain will be deleted.


What can I do to prevent my domain expiry?

WPX Hosting strongly encourages you to renew your domain name well before its expiration date. Leaving your domain renewal too late is risky and even during the grace period, having enough time for renewal is not a guarantee.

If you have enabled auto-renewal on your domain name, and if you have sufficient funds in your account, then your domain will be automatically renewed 45 days prior to expiration. In this case, we can take care of it for you.

To find out more about auto-renewal, read this article.


If you do not want to renew your domain, feel free to ignore the reminder emails and your domain will eventually expire. After your domain has expired, there will be no further obligations or payments required on your part.


If you are unsure about what to do with your domain, or would like to find out more, please raise a support ticket with us here:
