Domain Expiration Policy

Misk.com offers renewal grace periods giving you a window of time to renew your domain name after expiration and before it is fully deleted.

Grace periods are subject to change at any time due to registry or other changes. You should always renew your domain name before expiration. Renewals add time to the current expiration date of the name no matter how long in advance they are made.

Renewal Reminders

We send renewal reminders to the email address on your Misk.com Account 90, 60, 30, and 5 days before your expiration date. Be sure to keep this email address up to date since these are the only renewal reminders you will receive. We do not send renewal reminders via postal mail or phone (beware of scams).

Domain Renewal Grace Periods

There are four stages of expiration. Not all stages are offered by all extensions and they differ in their length. The table below lists the current stages.

Stage 1 - Domain Expiration
Your domain name will stop working on the expiration date listed in your control panel.

Stage 2 - Renewal Grace Period
Number of days after expiration you have to renew the domain via your control panel at our normal cost. Domains are deleted on the last day of this grace period. In addition, grace periods are subject to change and can disappear in the future. You should renew domains before they expire and not rely on renewal grace periods.

Stage 3 - Redemption Grace Period
Number of days you can redeem the domain at the registry after the renewal grace period has ended. The domain is no longer in your control panel during this stage and you'll have to email us. The cost for processing redemption grace period renewals is $150 USD + the cost of a one year renewal of the name. This is a rather expensive option so you should always be sure to renew the domain prior to the expiration date or during the renewal grace period we provide.

Stage 4 - Pending Delete Period
This stage comes right after the redemption grace period ends. The domain name cannot be renewed or redeemed when the domain is in this state. The domain will become available within a few days. Once it does, you can search for the name using our website's realtime search to register it once again.

Tools - Domain Whois
A whois search at https://www.misk.com/tools/#whois will allow you to see the current state of the domain if it is in the Redemption Period or Pending Delete phase.

For .ca domain names, you can see the expected release date of the domain in the whois search during the pending delete period.
