The Renew Grace Period has been revised from 40 to 36 days for all .COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, .BIZ, .NAME, and .US domain names. After the 36th day from expiry, the domain name will be queued for deletion by the system, and no modifications would be possible. The customer can choose to restore it by contacting us.
