Once a domain name has expired, OpenSRS may list the domain name in an online auction marketplace. We have partnered with Namefind LLC for this service.
OpenSRS makes every effort to allow registrants to renew their expired domain names. During the first 40 days after a domain name expires, the original registrant can reinstate the domain name simply by renewing it. Between day 40 and day 70, the original registrant can still redeem their domain name as long as the domain name is not sent for auction.
After a domain name registration expires, we reserve the exclusive right to offer the registration
to other users/registrants through the use of Tucows Auction Services. All existing grace and redemption periods will continue to apply except for domain names considered sold at auction.
Important: When sold at auction, the domain is acquired by a third party and is not available for re-registration after our stated grace period. You may try to contact this third party by looking up the whois on the domain name.
When OpenSRS lists a domain name for auction, it is still within the original registrant's grace period, and renewal is available until day 40.
