It is all about making your presence felt and scaling higher in the web world. But, what if your business is doing good and your domain name expires. As you know a domain name is an important part of expanding your business. Your potential clients reach you through a website or a domain, right.
If a domain name expires, you need to renew it immediately. If you have a registered domain name with BigRock and it expires, what will happen? Continue reading to know more.
What Happens If BigRock Domain Names Expire?
Once your registered domain name with BigRock expires, the domain will automatically go to the renewal grace period stage. The domain name will be then put to a temporary commercial parking page.
During that period, all the site functions will stop working including emails and contacts. The number of days a domain name can be renewed before its sold to another buyer depends on the domain name extension.
Each domain name gets a grace period for extension or renewal. .COM will get a grace period of 36 days. A .CO will get a grace period of 40 days and .ORG will get the grace of 36 days as well.
Few Things That Can Happen If/When Your BigRock Domain Name Expires
1. Some Domains Follow a Standard Process in the Renewal
Some of the domain extensions have specific conditions for the renewal grace period. If the .CO domain name expires, the owner will be given just 5 days of the grace period. In the five days grace period, the owner will have to renew the expired domain. If the domain is still not renewed in these five days, then the website will be put on to the parking page.
A .de domain name expires on the 5th last day of the month it was registered with the hosting site. If the domain name is registered on the 1st of any month, then the domain name will expire on the 26th of that month. Even if the domain is registered on the 31st of the month, the expiration date will still be 26th.
This may or may not be a standard for all hosting providers. Some may follow a different process for renewal. Thus, it is important to know about the hosting provider before signing-up with them. And if you are considering switching to another web host, then here a few comparison reviews that you can check out.
3. Restore a Domain Name From the Grace Period
If the domain name is automatically deleted or manually deleted by the technical team, you can still redeem it within the grace period. To restore the domain name in the grace period of the domain, you need to log in to Bigrock control panel.
