Restore a domain
There are 2 scenarios in which you may need to restore your domain:
- You deleted the domain within the last 30 days
- Your domain expired between 30-60 days ago
Learn more about policies for expiration and deletion of domain registrations.
About restoring a deleted domain
After you delete a domain, you have a grace period (typically 30 days) during which you can reclaim ownership. When you restore a deleted domain, you pay a one-time restoration fee. Restoring your domain reinstates the original registration period.
Keep in mind, the length of grace periods, restoration fees, and registration fees (if required) vary by domain ending. To confirm details for your domain, check the reference of domain ending details.
About restoring an expired domain
If your domain expired and you’ve passed the grace period for your domain ending (typically 30 days) but fewer than 60 days ago, you can restore your expired domain. When you restore an expired domain, you must pay a one-time restoration fee and purchase at least one additional year of registration.
