4. Domain Renewal And Deletion Grace Period
Auto-Renew will be initiated as long as there are funds in a customer account or a valid credit card on file in a customer account. If a customer has not selected our "Auto-Renew" feature for a domain name registration, we send several communications to customers and/or the agents acting on their behalf to alert them that their domain name registration services will expire on a certain date. These communications are sent at the following intervals prior to expiration: 90, 60, 30, 10, 1 day(s). It is important that all of our email addresses are white listed and protected from spam or junk mail blocking and that there is a valid and working email address on file with Purenic Japan Inc. so that customers can receive these types of communications. If a customer does not renew a domain name registration by the expiration date, the registration may be subject to delete or resale at any time after that. In an effort to help our customers avoid unintentional deletion of their domain name registration(s), we may, but are not obligated to, provide our customers with a "grace period" after their domain name registration services expiration date(s) (a "grace period" begins on the day after the date of expiration). We currently endeavor to provide a grace period that extends 30 days past the expiration date, to allow the renewal of an expired domain registration. During this period a customer can renew a domain name registration; however, a grace period is not guaranteed and can change or be eliminated at any time without notice. Consequently, every customer who desires to renew his or her domain name registration services should do so in advance of the expiration date to avoid any unintended deletion of their domain registration.. Please note that Purenic Japan Inc. is obligated to pay the Registry for all domain renewals on the day the domain name expires if it has not been renewed by a customer prior to the expiration date. We therefore take ownership of expired domains until such time they are renewed, auctioned, sold, or deleted.


5. Redemption Grace Period
If an expired domain name registration is not renewed as outlined above, absent extenuating circumstances, we will delete the domain name registration. Registry Operators may provide registrars with the ability to "redeem" a deleted domain name registration for a customer, and we in turn may (but are not obligated to) provide customers with an ability to redeem a particular domain name registration. Such a Redemption Grace Period (RGP) is not guaranteed and customers should renew their domain name registration services in advance of the domain name registration expiration date(s) to avoid deletion of domain name registration services. Currently, the Registry Operators provide an RGP for 30 days from the date of deletion. If we decide to provide the redemption service to a customer, we charge a fee of $150.00 US to redeem plus a renewal fee to renew a domain name registration during the RGP. If the domain name registration is not redeemed by the expiration of the RGP, it is then placed on "Pending Delete" status for five additional days, after which it is deleted and the domain name character string is then once again available for registration. In the event that a domain name registration is the subject of a Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceeding and expires or is deleted during the course of the dispute, the party that filed the UDRP proceeding has the option to renew or restore the domain name registration under the same commercial terms as the original customer. If the case ultimately is terminated or the arbitrator finds against the filing party, the name may be deleted within 45 days or renewed by Purenic Japan Inc. or by the customer within the grace period described above.
