Expired Registiration Recovery Policy

On Aug. 31, 2013, ICANN adopts the Expired Registration Recovery Policy (ERRP),
    which requires registrars to disclose important information to Registrants and prospective
    customers about expiration notices, fees, and redemption procedures. This policy contains all required elements in the new policy to abide with,
    /and to help you properly update your web site and existing terms and conditions
    so that you keep pace with ERRP's requirements.


    1. Expiration Notice Reminder:
    1.1 Prior to the expiration of any gTLD registration, resellers must notify the registered name holder of the expiration date at least three times.
    One of these notices must be sent approximately one month prior to expiration and one must be sent approximately one week prior to expiration and
    other other must be sent approximately 5 days after its expiration date.

    1.2 Resellers must describe on their websites the methods used to deliver pre- and post-expiration notifications, and how and when they will be sent.


    2. Fees and Procedures
    2.1 Resellers must make their renewal fees, post-expiration renewal fees (if different), and redemption/restore fees reasonably available to registered name
    holders and prospective registered name holders at the time of registration of a gTLD name.
    2.2 Resellers are required to clearly display all fees pertaining to the purchase of a domain on their web site.

Resellers are also required to directly include or provide a link to these fees in their terms of service.
