What is Renewal Warranty for domain names?
If your domain name is important for your business then Renewal Warranty is insurance that you will never lose it. As a leading registrar, every day we see clients who were not able to renew their domain in time. Their Internet site and their email addresses are no longer accessible and that often involves significant loss to their business.
It is easy and costly to lose a domain
A domain name is registered for a pre-set period at the end of which it is must be renewed to keep ownership. When a domaine name is not renewed, it enters a redemption period then falls into the public domain awaiting a new owner.
The redemption phase is a grace period during which it is still possible to come forward to retain ownership of one's domain. Nevertheless, this last resort has consequences and involves expenses. In the best case, it entails interruption of your Internet site and your email addresses during the many hours it take to urgently retrieve your domain name from redemption.
In the worst case, if no one comes forward to reactivate a domain, it is lost.
