Domain Expiry

by ianadmin on December 19, 2011

Individuals who own domain names may or may not have considered the fact that when they purchased those names, they only received them for a certain limited period of time. Most users simply pay for a single year or two when they reserve a name, not considering that the time will soon come when they need to renew the domain name registration. Domain names can in fact be reserved for up to ten years at once. There are a variety of reasons behind why an individual would, and probably should, choose to go with a longer domain expiration period than simply the minimum amount of time. This article discusses the ins and outs of domain expiration and renewal issues.

Domains expire all the time. Keeping track of these expiration dates is in fact now possible. A one of a kind domain expiration tracking service, known as Domain Expiration Tracker, exists which keeps on top of domains that are registered and then notifies interested parties through email once the domain name is set to expire. This proves to be a very helpful application for any user who is interested in securing domain names that are presently registered, but which are nearing their relevant expiration date. Such a service includes an administration panel to manage domains, as well as an online installer.

When a domain registration approaches and then finally reaches its date of expiration, the domain name registries will not delegate the DNS servers to it any longer, and all of the domain name owner’s hosting services will stop working. The good news is that this happening does not truly signify that the user’s domain name has been erased and released. A number of domain name registries permit a grace period following the deactivation, in advance of the domain record in question being erased and released.

Still, thirty-three days following a domain name expiration, the user’s domain name will automatically be released to auction for any interested groups or individuals. After the domain has at last been erased and released, it will naturally be available for any other person or group to register it. Because of this, domain name owners have to make certain to renew their domains in a responsible time frame.

There is a big motivating factor to purchasing a longer time frame domain name expiration. Google has claimed that domain legitimacy can be effectively determined based on for how long the domain registration is good. They are well aware that domain names may be renewed and secured for as long as ten years going forward. Important and legitimate domain names would typically be paid and registered for a number of years in advance, and similarly, unimportant and illegitimate domain names are seldom utilized for a greater period than a single year. So Google has claimed that the expiration date for a given domain can be utilized as an element in considering the value and legitimacy of a domain itself, and any information and documents relevant to it as well. Since Google engineers have admitted that in excess of two hundred different and stand alone criteria are employed in the determination of what sites should be ranked where, it does not seem much of a stretch of imagination to reach the conclusion that Google does in fact attach some importance and value to length of domain name expiration in the ranking of websites.
