A domain name is placed in REDEMPTION PERIOD status when the registry requests the deletion of a name that has epxired and elapsed a 30-day renewal grace period. A domain in REDEMPTION PERIOD status will not be included in the zone file. GigaLayer CANNOT modify anything on a domain that is in REDEMPTION PERIOD status.
The only action a registrar can take on a name in REDEMPTION PERIOD is to request that it be restored. Any other registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. Unless restored, the domain will be held in REDEMPTION PERIOD status for 45days, after which the domain will be free to the public.
Redemption costs between $80 - $100 extra charge, depending on the Registrar.
If you need any assistance with redemption, contact GigaLayer Support.
