How do I find out when my domain name expires?

To find an expiration date recorded by the registry, simply type the domain name you are looking for in the "Check names" box. You will see the expiration date of your domain in the .Expiration Date. field.
ATTENTION! This information is based solely on information submitted by the domain registrar and as such is not a confirmation that your payment was received by the registrar. For example, if your domain recently expired, the registrar may have automatically extended its expiration period by one year while waiting for your payment. If this is not received on time, the domain registration may be cancelled.

What happens when my domain name expires?

When your domain expires, the registrars or the registry have the right to DELETE your domain name at any time. To minimize the inconvenience, associated with a loss of domain name, SITA provides registrars with an extended period of time, to resolve any outstanding cases. When a domain name expires, your registrar has 45 days, in which he must delete all those names he does not wish to renew. Your registrar will most likely require that you settle any payment for renewals, well before this extended period. We suggest you contact your registrar immediately, if your name has been deleted.

How do I renew my domain name?

Contact your registrar directly and request renewal of your domain name. All registrars are listed on our web site here. If you cannot remember who is the registrar of your domain name, simply type the domain name you are looking for in the "Check names" box. Then click on the link in the .Sponsoring Registrar. field.

My domain name registration is not yet expired. If I wish to renew it now, will my remaining registration term be lost?

No, you can renew your domain name at any time and no registration years are lost with this process. Any additional registration years are added to the existing registration for up to 10 years.

I have requested my registrar to renew my domain name. How can I confirm this request was completed?

When registry accepts the request from the registrar, the expiration date is updated in the Who-is database. Simply type the domain name you are looking for in the "Check names" box. Once your registrar has completed the request, you will see the new expiration date in the .Expiration Date. field.

Once an expired domain name has been renewed, how long does it take for the domain to function again?

If your domain name was active, then there is no change. If your domain name was on hold because of non-payment, then the domain will begin working within 48 hours of its renewal. This assumes, of course, that the domain's DNS and hosts are still in place.

What is the cost for a domain renewal?

.aero domain renewal rates are the same as the current new domain registration fees. Please address to your Registrar for further details.

What happens if I did not take any renewal action during the 45 days grace period?

Your registrar may delete the domain name registration to avoid renewal charges from the registry. If your domain name is deleted, you will cease to be the holder of the domain name license. We suggest you contact your registrar immediately, if your name has been deleted.

What are the consequences when a domain name is deleted and re-registered?

Once deleted, the domain name becomes available to all eligible registrants, as specified by the current Domain Management Policy. If a domain is deleted and re-registered by a third party, the original registrant's web, e-mail and other Internet services will, in the best circumstances, simply stop working.

What are the minimum and maximum renewal periods?

Renewals can be made for one-year periods up to ten years in advance.

Will I receive a reminder when my domain is about to expire?

Renewal is your responsibility, but the registrar makes the best effort to contact you. You should always keep your contact information up to date.

My domain stopped working, what should I do?

Assuming your DNS and hosts are configured correctly, check the status of your domain name by typing it in the "Check names" box:

If your domain name is there, but is put on hold, this means that your registrar is awaiting a payment from you and you need to contact the registrar.
