- If my domain expires during a transfer, will the transfer still be completed?
If your domain transfer was initiated before the expiration date, the transfer can still be completed. Most domain registrars will let the domain transfer continue if the domain has expired before the transfer has been completed; however, there are a few registrars that will manually deny the transfer after the domain has expired. If this worries you, you should contact your previous domain registrar, and ask them if they will still let the domain transfer continue since the transfer was initiated before the domain expired. NOTE: A domain transfer does not start right after you submit a domain transfer order to us. A domain transfer starts after the transfer has been authorized. You will receive a "Transfer Initiated" email from us when that happens. See the steps involved in a domain transfer.

Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down. Check the box next to the domain name(s) you want to renew and click on the "Bulk Action" button. Choose "Renew" from the "Bulk Action" list. The selected domain(s) will be added to your shopping cart along with any domain privacy that you have with them. Press the "Shopping Cart" icon at the top and follow the "Check Out" buttons to submit your order. You can also renew your domain for multiple years. If your domain has already expired, you may still be able to renew it during its grace renewal period. You can see how much time each domain extension offers for grace renewal on our TLD page. Please note that renewing your domain during its grace renewal period will be at the same price as a regular renewal (you can also see our renewal prices on our TLD page) until the last 10 days, during which Dynadot charges a $10 late-renewal fee. Don't want to forget about your domain renewals? Learn how to set up auto-renew for your domains and our system will take care of the renewal for you! If your domain is past its renewal grace period, you may still be able to restore your domain; however, this will be at a higher cost than a regular renewal. Find out more about the domain lifecycle.

- 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: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click on "Inactive Domains" from the drop-down. Check the box next to the domain name(s) you wish to restore and click on the "Bulk Auction" button. If the domain name(s) do not have a checkbox next to them, they cannot be restored. Click on the "Restore" button. The domain(s) will be added to your shopping cart at the top right-side of the page. Click on your shopping cart to access the item(s) in your cart. Press the "Check Out" buttons to submit your restore order. NOTE: A restore order can take up to 24 hours to process. 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. Find out more about the domain lifecycle.
