What happens if I don't renew before the expiry date?

In most cases the registry actually places the domain in a holding mode for several weeks after the expiry date. It is possible to renew the domain during this period, however additional fees usually apply. After the holding period is over, the domain is released back for public sales. However, some registries release the domain immediately after the expiry date. It is best to renew your domains 30 days prior to expiry to allow for any delays in the renewal process.
