How do I restore my domain in redemption period?

If the grace renewal period of your domain has already passed, you may still be able to restore the domain. Unfortunately, this is not guaranteed and will cost more because the domain has already been deleted.

To restore your domain, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "Inactive Domains" from the "Domains" drop-down menu.
  3. Any domains that can be restored will have a check box next to them. If there is no check box, then the domain cannot be restored.
  4. Check the box next to the domain names(s) you wish to restore.
  5. Click on the "Restore" button.
  6. The domains(s) will be added to your shopping cart at the top of the page.
  7. To checkout, click on the shopping cart and then click the "Check Out" button.
  8. Our system will take you through the check out process to submit your order.
  9. You will receive an "Order Complete" email from us when your order has finished processing and your domain has been restored.

Please note that a restore order will not include domain privacy even if you had privacy on that domain before it went into its redemption period. Privacy can be added after the domain is re-added to your account.

In most cases, a restore can be done within 30 days (the typical redemption period of most domain extensions) after the renewal grace period (typically 40 days) has ended. However, sometimes a domain is purchased in our expired auctions and as a result, it cannot be restored.
