An India Domain name is the Indian digital identity of an Indian citizen to stand aside from the crowd in this digital era which is going to be his/her Indian address on the Internet. Like any address, it is important for the success of one’s business that he/she uses, promotes and protects it so that customers can find one’s business address easily.

Domain names were developed to make it easy for people to find things on the Internet. Computers find each other by using a set of numbers called an IP Address, these look like 69.xx.xxx.24x. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a set of software and computers that translates domain names into their matching IP addresses and vice versa. When we type www.csc.gov.in into our web-browser, our request gets resolved (or converted) into an IP address and the information found at that address gets delivered back to our browser.

What is redemption grace period?

Redemption grace period (RGP) is a service that allows the registrar to restore .IN domain name that has been unintentionally deleted. RGP is a 30-day period that begins after a registrar requests that the registry delete a domain name. When a domain name is in RGP, its status is listed as Pending, Delete, Restorable, and Hold. When a domain name enters RGP, it is removed from the .IN zone file. As a result, any Internet services served by the domain name will be disabled (e.g., e-mail or a Web site). The registrant must act immediately if he or she wants to restore the domain name via sponsoring Domain Registrar. After the 30-day RGP, the domain name enters the Redemption Hold Period (RHP).

What is Redemption Hold Period (RHP)?

If a registrar deletes a domain name and does not request that the domain name be restored during the 30-day RGP, it enters RHP. RHP lasts for five days, and during this time domain name is locked and unable to be restored. After five days, it becomes available for re-registration. Once the domain name enters RHP, the prior registrant cannot request a restore. When a domain name is in RHP, its status is listed as Pending, Delete, Scheduled for Release, and Hold.

How does the user will know if their domain name is in RGP?

If a domain name is in RGP, the Status field will show the domain name as Pending, Delete, Restorable, and Hold.

Will domain still work if it is in RGP state?

No. Once a domain name is placed in RGP, no Internet services for that domain name will work.

Why domain name which is in RHP state can’t be restored?

Once the 30-day RGP for a domain name has passed, it cannot be restored. RHP serves as a notice period for registrars regarding the pending availability of the domain name.

Will a renewal fee be charged in addition to the RGP fee itself? Will user lose any time that remained on registration?

If the domain name has expired before it is deleted and enters RGP. If further it is restored, then registrar's account is debited for the RGP fee and the one-year renewal fee. If the domain name has not expired prior to deletion and entering RGP, and then it is restored, the registrar's account is debited the RGP fee, but the renewal fee is charged only if a renewal is requested explicitly or the domain was deleted within the 45-day auto-renew grace period. It is up to each registrar whether to charge the registrant for the renewal fee in addition to an RGP fee.
