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.

What is GDPR Transfer Auto-Approval? This information might be out of context

Due to complexities of the European Union's GDPR, domain name transfers have become less secure. NameBright has changed its systems as of May, 2018 to make it so that all transfers out of NameBright need to be approved from within your account before a transfer will take place. Should you find this a nuisance and do not want this added level of security, you can turn it off here. But do note, if you turn this feature off, and your domain is unlocked, anyone who knows an auth code to your domain will be able to transfer it anywhere they want. With this feature turned on, you have to approve any outbound transfers from within your account.
