    Good morning,

    We are making a change to our domain name expiry process and wanted to give you enough notice to make decisions on your portfolio. GoDaddy is changing the domain renewal timeline from 42 to 30 days for most domains. Based on our research, less than 1% of our customers renew after 30 days.

    Starting Dec 4, the following changes will happen to expired domain names:

    • After Day 5 of expiration, DNS, email, hosting, redirecting and any other DNS-dependent services will be interrupted and stop working.
    • After Day 30 of expiration, domain names are no longer able to be renewed or transferred away.

    We wanted to give a heads -up so you have enough notice to make decisions on your portfolio. As always please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

    Thanks,
    **** ****

    More money for Godaddy, and happier domainers.

    Makes sense from a domain investor standpoint. Not a regular registrant viewpoint.
