    Domain renewal after the 30/40 days on a .co.uk, what's the proceadure is it still yours and renewable right up to the 91?

    So going by the below statement, how much is it during suspension to renew?

    The domain remains yours upto the time of deletion. Assuming the Tag Holder hasn't detagged the name you would only pay what they usually charge for the renewal and that includes time up to and including the last day of suspension.

    So, for instance, if you get charged say 10 quid for a renewal by your Tag Holder that's all you should have to pay (unless they have clauses on late payment in their Ts&Cs).

    So for a tag holder it's normal cost so in effect they can be late paying by 90 days. Cushdy having a tag aint it, register for free, drop for free and pay late on renewal. :mrgreen:

    Thanks for that.

    Cheers

    mmmm... not sure if you're being facetious Lee... but it's also cushdy for the registrant too if you're looking at it like that. :cool: But these renewals still have to be paid for (eventually) afore you can use the suspended domains again.

    Having said that, most ordinary registrants keep a domain parked, use it just for email, or have a website attached too. It wouldn't seem to be in their interests to lose their email service if they are using the domain for personal or business purposes.

    Yes but a lot of tag holders don't. I was just stating how many freebies and giveways you get by being a tag holder, it's worth the fee just to give yourself 90 days credit. I actually just wanted to know cost of renewal during suspension. ;)

    On another tangent I just got this from 123-reg after I posted the initial thread:

    They're all so eager to delete. My reply was

    Dont worry, I still get those from 123-reg for domains that have been deleted and are now free to register.

    So they're worthless emails? I just don't need them deleted, that's all. domaindiscount24 did that to one of mine and it was still within renewal period, at some point they removed the ability to renew after the renew date and now just delete them, they obviously don't like money, ******s.

    Ah... well.... that is 123Reg (the company) exercising its legal right to its own business model. Nominet does not dictate to its tag holders how they should write their terms and conditions or indeed how they run their businesses.

    Technically speaking, the minute a domain name expires, there is no longer a contract between Nominet and the Registrant (until it is renewed) and in the case of .coms, the various Top Level Registrars do all sorts of stuff like suspend, add charges, or even usurp domains, depending how many days overdue the renewal is.

    At least with Nominet, you know the name is safe for another 90 days if you forget, haven't got the renewal fee right there and then, or haven't made your mind up if you really really want that particular domain. That's just another reason why I like Nominet's business model better than Verisign's.
