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.

What is Redemption Grace Period This information might be out of context

After a domain name expires, you have 30 days to renew the domain at the regular domain renewal rate for that extension. If you miss this, you get an additional 30 days to "Redeem" a domain during a period that is called the "Redemption Grace Period." This is sometimes referred to as "RGP" in short. If you do not renew a domain name by the end of Redemption Grace Period, the domain will become available for others to register. If you have domain names that are in Redemption Grace Period this is your last and final chance to recover the domain name.

What is Default Sending Address? This information might be out of context

This setting is only used on wildcard email addresses. Essentially when you send email from our web-mail client you will be able to send the email from whomever you want. But the default sending address is the email address that will be auto-populated when composing new email messages. If you do not configure the default sending address, the web-mail client will use the default address of "mail@" for wildcard addresses. In the case of categories with default sending addresses, we will auto-populate the first domain name that we find in the category unless you specify an exact address in the default sending address.

What Is a Premium Domain? This information might be out of context

A Premium Domain is a domain name that is already owned by someone else. These domains are listed for sale through NameBright.com at fixed prices. This means the owner is willing to sell rights to this domain name for this price. This is a one-time cost to buy rights to the domain, and after you acquire the domain you can renew it at annual yearly costs for under $10.00 per year typically. (Price will depend on the exact extension)

In today's market most quality domain names are taken or used, and the ability to purchase a Premium Domain will help you jumpstart your business or give your business an additional boost.

Premium Domains that are purchased through NameBright will be available for use in your account almost immediately after purchase has been made.

What are Account Blackwords? This information might be out of context

Account Blackwords are for domain name investors that want to avoid purchasing certain types of domain names. For example, domain name investors will probably want to create blackwords that prevent them from purchasing domains of famous trademarks such as Facebook, McDonalds, and Google. They might also want to avoid owning domain names that contain non PG-13 content as well.

With blackwords setup, NameBright will prevent you from purchasing domain names that contain these terms. This will be enforced when you add items to your cart, or even when purchasing domain names via our programmatic API.

There are special commands you can use for blackwords that give you even more control.

Prefixes ( % ) Suffixes ( % ) Negative Matches ( - ) Inclusive Matches ( + )
You can restrict purchases of domain names based on what the domain starts with. To do this add "%" after the term. For example...

casio% will prevent you from purchasing a domain that begins with Casio, but not one that has "Casio" in the middle of it. This would help because "casio" can fall in the middle of other words, as it is in the middle of the word Occasion and you might want to purchase domains with the word Occasion or Occasional in them.
Similar to a prefix match, you can put a "%" symbol on the other side of a word to prevent purchasing of domains that end with a specific suffix. For example...

%Citi will prevent you from purchasing a domain containing "Citi" as a suffix, but won't block "citi" from appearing in the beginning or middle of a word. This would allow you to purchase a domain BigCities.com, but not BankCiti.com.
A negative match is done with a minus sign "-", and will prevent certain words while allowing longer words with variations. For example...

Ambien -ambient will prevent the purchase of GreatAmbienDrug.com, but will not restrict the purchase of a domain that contains the word "ambient" as this is a good word to have in a domain name.
An inclusive match will prevent the purchase of a domain that has two completely different words in it. For example...

Amazon +Store +Book would not prevent the purchase of the domain AmazonRiver.com, but it would prevent the purchase of AmazonOnlineStore.com because that has both "amazon" and "store" in the domain.

If you want to get really advanced you can combine the above commands to achieve even more powerful results.
