What happens if I don't Renew the domain?

There is a 30-45 day grace period after it expires during which you will receive a number of reminders that you can still renew the domain - eventually this will say that there is an additional fee to renew it.

 

Finally it will tell you when it will be the final notice at which point the domain will be released to be purchased again. It may get auto picked up by a domain buying service that purchases expired domains in an attempt to resell them. Sometimes they just expire and are then out there to be renewed as if it was never purchased to start with.

Hi @Aradx,

You only keep the registration on a domain for as long as it's paid for in the account. You can check out this article for all of the steps a domain will take after it expires.
