Web FAQs >> Domain Name Questions

Domain names are register for a fixed period of 2 years, most Registrars now offer the option of registering a domain name for a period of 1-10 years, often with substantial discounts for extended registrations.

Once the owner of a domain name declines to pay the renewal fee to maintain their registration, that domain name will expire. And it will eventually be deleted and returned to the "pool" of unregistered names.

Once a domain name has expired and been deleted, it is available to be re-registered by anyone. It is at the exact moment of deletion.
