Auto-renewal is attempted 20 days prior to the domain name's expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal 7 days later and again 7 days after that. The final renewal attempt will be 6 days prior to expiration.

If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 25th day after the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption.
