So by now most have heard the news from GoDaddy about 30 being the new 42.
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.
That’s cool but another point we have spoken about for a long time, bidder id’s will not come to fruition.
Paul Nicks from GoDaddy posted on Namepros that change will not be coming. I think that’s a mistake, but then most talk about transparency in the domain industry is usually incomplete.
Paul Nicks said: It’s something we’ve considered but have no current plans to change.
