To renew a domain name, a renewal fee is required by the Accredited Registrar.
Ensure that the request has been properly processed through the registrar’s website or through the WHOIS.
When the renewal date is near, the registrar will usually send a notice via the holder’s email listed on the registrar’s database. It is important to keep the contact info accurate and updated. For more information, contact your registrar.
In the event that the domain name’s registrar is unclear or uncertain, search for the domain under the WHOIS query. There you will also find information regarding your domain’s validity date.
If you wish to renew the domain name using a different registrar, you must first request a transfer to a new registrar and then renew your domain name registration.
Domain Name Expiry and Deletion
A domain name that has expired is not automatically deleted. There is a grace period of 30 calendar days until the domain name is permanently revoked.
During this time the domain name may still be renewed. A domain name in the expiration process will still appear in the WHOIS query accompanied by the notice: “Not renewed. About to be revoked.”
As long as the domain name has not been deleted, it may be renewed. Registration renewal is retroactive and will commence upon the expiration date.
Under certain circumstances, an additional grace period may be extended up to 120 days.
At the end of this process, if the domain name has not been renewed it will be deleted from the registry and be publically available on a “first come, first serve” basis. Therefore, it is advisable to renew your domain on time.
Domain renewal for k12.il is still available directly through ISOC-IL, for a fee of 230 NIS for a two year registration.
