- What will happen if you do not renew your domain on time?
In the case of domain names that are not renewed on or before the Expiry Date or within a specified time period decided by LK Domain, immediately following the Expiry Date (“the Post Expiry Grace Period”), the domain name will be suspended.
If the domain has expired, you are required to regularize your account by settling the arrears annual subscriptions which enable you to renew your domain and claim multiple year discounts. Please contact the customer services hotline for more information.
The existing server details of the particular domain name are removed temporarily and pointed to LK Domain Registry servers so that when a person browses the particular web address, he/she will be directed to a web page which says that the domain name has been temporarily disconnected.
Domain Name Deletion
The original registrant may reactivate the domain name during the suspension period by settling all outstanding dues. If they fail to do so, the domain name will be deleted after a reasonable time as decided by the Registry.
- Will you lose your domain forever?
Interested parties can request for an expired domain name (only during the period in which the domain name is SUSPENDED) via the particular suspended website. As per our normal procedure, domain names may be re-categorized into higher priced categories (Desirable or Special Domain Names) before being SUSPENDED.
At the expiry of the suspension period:
• If customers have placed their interest in registering the suspended domain, LK Domain Registry will inform them and register the domain according to the order they placed their interest.
• If no requests have been received, the domain name will be released to the general public.
