Expiration Date

The domain expiration date is very important because if your domain expires it could be lost.  Most, but not all, give a grace period for renewal after it expires.  There have been many situations, lawsuits, and grief because domain owners did not keep their domain renewed.  Domains can be registered up to 10 years in advance for less than $10 per year.

Note that if a domain is in “Redemption Period” the domain MAY be able to be renewed for an additional fee of around $80 – $200.  If the domain is valuable the registrar may take it or auction it off.
