Provisions specific to specific TLD Registrations.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the .COM .and NET Registry Operator, VeriSign, Inc., and its directors, officers, employees, agents, and affiliates from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and expenses arising out of or relating to the Registered Name holder's domain name registration.
Registrar's Deletion and Auto-Renewal Policies.
With auto-renew off: Prior to a domain name's expiration, Regystro will make multiple attempts to notify you that the domain name is expiring when auto-renewal is turned off on your domain. Regystro will send you an email approximately one month prior to the domain name's expiration. This will be the first warning that your domain name is about to expire. Regystro will then send another email approximately one week before the domain name's expiration. Finally, if the domain name is not renewed by the expiration date of the domain, Regystro will send a final notification about the domain name's expiration.
With auto-renew on: If you have auto-renew turned on, Regystro will attempt to renew the domain based on the advanced setting "Domain Auto-Renewal" found in My Account > Settings > Advanced. This setting will tell Regystro how many days before the domain name's expiration that the auto-renew should be processed. The default setting for this is "14 days" prior to the domain name's expiration. When Regystro attempts to renew a domain with auto-renew on we will first look for an available funded account balance, and then cycle through each of your credit cards to attempt to make the auto-renewal. If auto-renewal fails, we will send you an email notifying you of the auto-renewal failure and try again on the following day. If your domain does not auto-renew within the number of days configured, the domain name will be allowed to expire due to non-payment of the auto-renewal. Presuming you keep this setting at 14 days, this means you will get 14 auto-renewal failures via email before the domain name expires. While you can set this setting to "1 day", we do not recommend this as a billing failure will mean the domain name will expire the following day, will become unusable, email will stop working and the website will go offline.
If your domain expires, we will send an email the day that this happens. Regystro will also send a final email about your domain expiration one week after the domain name has expired, to give you a final notice your domain name is about to become available for someone else to use.
Expired Domain Process.
Upon expiration your nameservers will be changed to expired1.namebrightdns.com and expired2.namebrightdns.com as is required by ICANN's ERRP. (Expired Registration Recovery Policy) During this "outage" your domain will have all services interrupted (including but not limited to email, web hosting, ftp servers, etc.) During this expiration process you will be allowed to renew the domain for the standard renewal cost of that domain per the TLD's current price.
The registrant of an expired domain will be given no less than 30 days to pay for the renewal of the domain before the domain will enter Redemption Grace Period ("RGP"). Domain names at Regystro move from "expired" status to RGP status on the 30th day after a domain name's expiration. Due to processing constraints, on rare occasions this date might be up to 10 days later. As a registrant you should expect this will happen on the 30th day after the domain name expires.
As the registrar of a deleted domain, registrar takes zero liability for domains that were allowed to expire due to user error, non-payment, and credit card on file being out of date or over balance. Registrar will provide ample notification to user about potential domain name expirations when applicable, but is not liable in situations where a domain is allowed to expire, and not renewed for a period of 30 days beyond the domain's expiration date.
Domain Deletion / Redemption Grace Period Recovery.
If you fail to renew your domain through the end of the expiration of the domain (30 days from the domain name's expiration) that domain will enter Redemption Grace Period (aka "RGP") Once a domain enters RGP status you will have 30 days to "redeem" the domain at the standard redemption period price. The cost to redeem a .com or .net domain from RGP is $100 per domain that is recovered once the domain has entered the RGP stage of the expiration process. Non .com or .net domains will be charged $100, or the registry's redemption fee; whichever cost is greater. Any domain that goes beyond this 30 days of Redemption Grace Period (in addition to the previous 30 days of auto-renew grace period) will be irretrievable. Meaning 60 days after the domain name's expiration date.
There are two processes whereby domains go through RGP at Regystro.com. Registry Redemption Grace Period (a.k.a "Registry RGP") and Registrar Redemption Grace Period (a.k.a. "Registrar RGP"). In the case of Registrar RGP, the domain name may be auctioned off or sold to third parties who have an interest in the domain beginning on the 30th day after the domain name has expired. Should a third party purchase rights to the domain, you will have exactly 30 days from the beginning of RGP to pay the redemption fee to have the domain name returned to you. Should the redemption fee not be paid within 60 days after the domain name's expiration, the ownership of the domain will change hands and be irreversible.
In the case of Registry RGP, the domain name will be deleted and go through the registry's RGP process. This period is mandated to be the 30 days immediately following the deletion of a registration. Therefore, presuming the domain name is deleted at the registry on the 30th day after the domain name's expiration, you will have 30 days following that date to redeem the domain name for the standard redemption cost of $100. Again, if you do not redeem a domain before the end of this redemption grace period, the domain will drop and become available for anyone to use. In many cases, you can lose permanent rights and access to the domain.
In other words, if the domain name is not renewed or redeemed within 60 days following the expiration, the domain will be irretrievable. During the first 30 days you can pay the basic renewal fee. In the second 30 days the Redemption fee for .com and .net is $100.
If you use privacy protection provided by Regystro you agree that you will not abuse the service, and any involvement / interaction on Regystro's behalf you will be charged a $150 "Whois privacy protection maintenance fee". This includes, but is not limited to legal services required from operating said domain, disputes over your domain or mediation of some form concerning the domain. If your accounts are found to be problematic, for any reason whatsoever, Regystro has the full right to terminate privacy protection on any and all domain names in your account. If you are doing anything illegal or questionably illegal on a domain name that is privacy protected, your privacy protection will be removed immediately. You grant Regystro absolute right and power. By using privacy protection services you consent that your personal information is not 100% protected. For iron clad privacy in Whois, Regystro suggests you hire a lawyer and have that lawyer be the primary contact on your domain. If Regystro receives a UDRP on a domain name that has privacy protected turned on, it will remove privacy protection so that you can respond to the dispute as the owner of the domain name.
You agree that in using privacy protection services, Regystro will review and forward certain communications addressed to this domain at it's own digression. In using Privacy Protection you acknowledge you are pointing ownership of the domain to Regystro.
Please note that certain domain registries do not allow privacy protection. Some example extensions that do not allow privacy protection are: .asia, .bz, .in, .ca, .ch, .cn, .co.uk, .com.au, .com.es, .com.sg, .de, .es, .eu, .fr, .li, .me.uk, .net.au, .nom.es, .nu, .org.au, .org.es, .org.uk, .sg, .us
1 Year Free Privacy Protection
All domain names registered through Regystro (which can have privacy protection) get 1 year of free privacy protection. This is on new registrations, on transfers in and on domain names that have never had privacy turned on before. After the 1 year is up you will be charged for the renewal at the current privacy protection price. In the case your privacy protection does not end on the "anniversary" of your domain name's expiration (can happen with transfers for example), Regystro will "sync" the privacy protection to the closest anniversary of the expiration date once the 1-year free has expired. In this case you will see a pro-rated charge where privacy might only renew for a few months (for a fraction of the yearly price at the pro-rated price), and then you will see a second privacy charge for an additional year when the anniversary of your domain's expiration comes up. This is done to keep all services associated with a domain synced up with its expiration date to make the management of your domain names easier.
If you do not cancel your 1-year of free privacy protection before the domain name renews, or before the anniversary of the domain, you will be charged the current rate for privacy protection. (Currently $2.95 per domain per year.)
