Pending delete name now renewed - can be done?

I was watching a russian domain labeled "pending delete" in its whois that was supposed to drop on Oct 3rd. Now I see its been renewed.

I thought it wasn't possible to pull back a name from pending delete status. Or is it?

Re: Pending delete name now renewed - can be done?

According to this they should not have been able to renew except during the redemption period.

What is the Domain Redemption Period?
The redemption period is a Domain Registry period of up to 30 days that occurs when a domain name is deleted after having expired unrenewed. Instead of just getting deleted and returning to the pool of domain names available for registration, the existing registry keeps a hold on the domain name in a what is technically called as REDEMPTION PERIOD. During this 30-day redemption period, the original domain registrant (owner of the domain) is allowed to retrieve the domain name from deletion by contacting their Registrar. This process costs an additional fee.

This extra 30-day period - redemption period - extends the time available to renew expired domain names by 30 days. However, all names that enter the redemption period are removed from the zone files in the global DNS, as a result, any Web site or email services associated with the domain name gone into redemption period will stop working and would appear offline.

Pending Delete Phase
In addition, after the 30-day redemption period there is a 5-day Pending Delete Phase. When a domain is in Pending Delete Phase, no one is allowed to renew the domain and it cannot be yet registered because its still not returned to the public domain pool. After the 5-day Pending Delete Phase the Registry will release the domain name back into the public pool of available domain names enabling fresh registration.

Renew domain before redemption phase
It is strongly recommended that you renew your domain registration in time before the domain name is placed in redemption lock because once its placed in redemption, the zone files of such domain gets automatically removed from the Domain Name Service and associated website and email etc services will cease to work.

Thanks Bill. That's interesting. Drewbert confirmed the domain was in pending delete so I wasn't seeing things.

Re: Pending delete name now renewed - can be done?

Here is another article on pending delete.

http://www.registercompass.com/wiki/...ingdelete.aspx

Pending Delete Cycle
How domain names expire
Many people believe that domains expire at the exact moment that they say. The truth of the matter is that a domain that does not get renewed will actually go through a 75 day process after the expiration date before it is actually available for someone else to pick up. When the owner of a domain does not renew that name by the renewal date, that domain name will go into an expired status. For the next 40 days the domain will stay in a grace period where all services of that domain are turned off - however the domain owner still has the option to renew the domain by paying the standard renewal fee.

Now, once the domain enters the grace period you have your first indication that it may not be renewed at all. But, since the domain can be renewed by the original owner without paying a penalty you may also assume that they will pick it back up before the grace period ends. Some owners simply forget or put-off renewing their domains until they are ultimately forced to do so or lose that domain.

After the 40 day grace period ends the domain's status will be changed to a redemption period. During this period the WhoIs information for that domain will begin to drop. Also during this period if the original owner of that domain decides that he does want to keep it he will be required to pay an additional re-activation and re-registration fee. This fee is typically around $100 but the amount will depend on the registrar. If a domain has entered the redemption period you can just about bet that the original owner has decided to let it go and not renew it.

There is one phase left after the redemption period. Once this period ends the domain will have a locked status as it begins the deletion period. The deletion period lasts only 5 days. On the last day of this period, typically between 11am and 2pm Pacific Time that domain name will be completely dropped from the ICANN database. Once this happens anyone is free to register that domain name.

Didn't Verisign have some scheme going with ICANN where they were going to scoop them up and auction them off?

All for the greater good of course.

I think they kind of already do. The registrars get a shot at the drops before the general public, then they sell them thru the likes of Snapnames.
