ICANN has introduced a list of mandatory requirements around handling expired domain names. Read on to know more about Expired Registration Recovery Policy (ERRP). To be compliant with this policy, Great Atlantic Media (Domain Service) plans to go live with changes (mentioned below) in our system on 8th September, 2013.

What we’re doing to comply with this policy:

    As per this policy, we are mandated that Registrant at Expiry (RAE), i.e. the registrant contact of a domain name immediately prior to its expiration, should receive renewal notifications.

   Great Atlantic Media is required to send at least 2 mandatory expiration reminders to the RAE, approximately 30 days before expiry of a domain name. Additionally, at least one more notice must be sent within 7 days of domain expiry. As an added good faith effort to assure the RAE has at least another alert, a final notice will be sent 1 day before domain expiry. This communication will to be in the language of the registration agreement.

    The renewal fee, post expiration renewal fee (if different from renewal fee) & restoration fees will be made available to the registrant at the time of domain registration. These fees are also now updated on the website and a URL of the same will be included in the registration agreement. This information is always contained in your renewal invoice from Great Atlantic Media.

    The Renew Grace Period has been revised from 40 to 36 days for all .COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, .BIZ, .NAME, and .US domain names. After the 36th day from expiry, the domain name will be queued for deletion by the Great Atlantic Media (domain services) system, and no modifications will be possible. Any person or business who wishes to renew any domain name after the expiration of the domain name must pay a one time $80.00 lapsed renewal fee. You have only 36 days to recover a lapsed domain name, after that Great Atlantic Media cannot provide any type of recovery method that can assure your requisition.

Should you require any additional information about this policy, please feel free to get in touch with me.
