Domains Glossary


30 days after a .uk domain name has expired, the domain is suspended, meaning that no changes can be made to the domain's configuration. The suspension period lasts for 60 days.

If the domain is not renewed during this period, it enters a queue pending deletion, and will eventually be deleted from the registry database. Once deleted, the domain will be available for anyone to register on a first-come, first-served basis.

Generic top-level domain names have a similar period called the redemption period.
