How to protect your domain from accidental expiration?

The German domain register DENIC introduces a 30-day protection period for .de domains, as we wrote before the weekend. He is surprised that he is doing it now. Especially since similar facilities use NASK, the .pl manager, and many other registers, both ccTLD and gTLD.

And the German primary market, with 14.8 million registered addresses .de, is the largest ccTLD market in Europe and the second largest in the world (after the free .tk domain). So it seems that similar services, securing subscribers against losing domain, should be a long-standing standard on it. Interestingly, the protection period does not apply to the Chinese end of .cn. Most registers provide, however, "Grace period" - global domains are protected up to 40 days after the expiration of the address.

In turn, the NASK quarantine for the .pl tip is 15 days. During its sole right to extend the name, the subscriber has the right to renew it. If it does not, the domain goes to the "pool" and becomes available to anyone interested. Unless you have previously set up an option - then the recovery of the address is practically possible only through negotiation with his new subscriber.
