What happens when my domain expires? This information might be out of context
If you do not renew your domain name before it expires, the domain name goes into a status of "Expired". This means your domain name will not function correctly, you will not receive email from the domain (if configured), and if you do not renew the domain shortly, it will go into the final process of being deleted from the registry. If you do not renew your domain name shortly, it will enter a point in the expiration process that is called "Redemption Grace Period", and at that point it will cost a lot more to reactivate the domain name than it does to simply renew it right now for the renewal cost.
Please note most functions on this page still work. You can still update whois information on the domain and configure privacy protection. However, as the domain name is expired you are not able to change other things such as nameservers on the domain, or to change locking for the domain. These functions are restricted at the registry and NameBright does not have control over this.
Auth Code Optional This information might be out of context
To transfer a domain name it must be unlocked at the current registrar. You will also need the "authorization code", also called an "auth code" or an "EPP code".
You can start a transfer at NameBright with or without the authorization code. However, we suggest you unlock the domain and get the authorization code prior to starting a domain transfer.
If you do not provide an authorization code prior to starting a transfer, you will be required to go to the current registrar, get the authorization code, and provide it to NameBright before the transfer is complete.
