Restoring a Domain

To reactivate your domain that has entered the redemption period, it has to be restored. This process takes up to a day to complete. We will send updates to your account email.

Upon completion, your domain’s registration will be automatically extended by the registry’s minimum renewal period (usually 1 year).

The registrar applies a mandatory restore fee. The final price of the restore will be the restore fee plus the domain’s renewal fee.

To restore a domain
  1. Log in to DNSimple with your user credentials.
  2. On the header, click the tab, locate the relevant domain, and click on the name to access the domain page.
  3. Select the link from the registration status card.

The total restore price will be held on your card immediately. Your card will be charged once the restoration completes. If the restoration fails, funds will be released.

If you have any questions about the domain restoration process, get in touch, and we’ll be happy to help.
