Expired Domain Name Terms

Expired Domains Policy

If you no longer wish to renew a domain name with Daily, you can opt to set the domain name to expire in your MyDaily Customer Control Panel to prevent any further renewals

If you choose to let your domain names expire (or in the event that we are unable to take payment for a domain name renewal), the domain name will eventually go back on sale to the general public “as new”, however there are several stages from the expiry date to the full deletion date where customers have the option to still renew their expired domain name via Daily.

The specific timeframes and stages are dependent on the type of domain name and governing registry:


UK Domain Names (.co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .uk)

1 day after expiry
  • The domain will still continue to work for 30 days and is renewable as normal through the MyDaily Customer Control Panel
30 days after expiry
  • The domain becomes "Suspended" for 60 days, but is still renewable through Daily.co.uk Control Panel
90 days after expiry
  • The domain is no longer renewable and will shortly become available to the public again
  • note that if you were originally a 'rights holder' to a .uk domain name, you will lose this status once your domain expires



Global Domain Names (.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz)

1 day after expiry
  • The domain name is suspended, effectively stopping any web pages or emails working with the name.

40 days after expiry

  • Daily can renew this domain name, however there is a £75 (excl VAT) charge as well as the standard renewal fee for one year to remove the name from redemption and have it renewed
  • If you want to pay to have your domain name removed from redemption, please raise a Support Ticket from your MyDaily Control Panel and we will arrange to take payment.
70 days after expiry
  • The domain will be deleted from the registry and will become available to the public again. Please note that this will not always happen immediately on the 70 day period, but may take up to a week. The status of the domain name will show as "Pending Delete" during this period
