Expired Domain Name Deletion Policy (EDDP)
All domain names registered through Batdomains.com Ltd. are subject to this Expired Domain Name Deletion Policy (EDDP).
I) Conclusion of Registration Period
At the conclusion of the registration period, failure by or on behalf of the Registered Name Holder to consent that the registration be renewed within the time specified, including in a second notice or reminder, shall, in the absence of extenuating circumstances, result in cancellation of the registration by the end of the auto-renew grace period. If Batdomains.com Ltd. makes any material changes to our deletion policy during the period of the registration agreement, Batdomains.com Ltd. will inform the registrant of the changes as well as other material changes to the registration agreement.
II) Extenuating Circumstances
Extenuating circumstances are defined as: UDRP action, valid court order, failure of Batdomains.com Ltd. renewal process (which does not include failure of a registrant to respond), the domain name being used by a nameserver(s) that provides DNS service to third-parties (additional time may be required to migrate the records managed by the nameserver(s)), the registrant being subject to bankruptcy proceedings, a payment(s) dispute (where a registrant claims to have paid for a renewal, or there is a discrepancy in the amount paid), a billing dispute(s) (where a registrant disputes the amount on a bill), the domain name being subject to litigation in a court of competent jurisdiction, or other circumstance as approved specifically by ICANN.
III) Renewal Without Consent
Where Batdomains.com Ltd. chooses, under extenuating circumstances, to renew a domain name without the explicit consent of the registrant, Batdomains.com Ltd. will maintain a record of the extenuating circumstances associated with renewing that specific domain name for inspection by ICANN.
IV) Renewal Reminders
Batdomains.com Ltd. will send renewal reminder notice to each registrant. These notices will be sent 60 days, 30 days, 15 days, 7 days, and 3 days prior to expiration, and within 5 days after the expiration of the registration.
V) Renewal Grace Period
On the day of expiry of the domain name, Batdomains.com Ltd. will mark the domain name as expired in our systems, the whois shall be changed to show the expired status of the domain name, the nameservers for the domain name will be changed, and the account holder will be notified by email. In the event that the domain name is renewed during the Renewal Grace Period, the whois and nameservers shall be restored to their previous state. The renewal grace period shall be 39 days, from the zeroth to the thirty-eighth day, after which the domain name will enter the Redemption Period.
VI) Redemption Grace Period
Domain Names not renewed within the Renewal Grace Period days are scheduled for deletion at the registry following a 30 day Redemption Grace Period. The Registration Grace Period is a thirty (30) day registry "hold" period for all domain names deleted by registrars. This hold period is designed to allow registrars the ability to "restore" names that were deleted accidentally or without the intent of the registrant. As such the registrant may recover the domain name from the Redemption Grace Period for a fee of $80.
VII)Domain Name Deletion
In the absence of extenuating circumstances (as defined in Section I above), a domain name will be deleted within 45 days of either Batdomains.com Ltd. or the registrant terminating a registration agreement.
VIII) Publication of Policies
Batdomains.com Ltd. will publish the details of our deletion and auto-renewal policies on the Batdomains.com website. Batdomains.com Ltd. will state on our website the registration fee, renewal fee, transfer fee and any fee charged for the recovery of a domain name during the Redemption Grace Period.
IX) UDRP Policies
In the event that a domain name that is the subject of a UDRP dispute is deleted or expires during the course of the dispute, the complainant in the UDRP dispute will have the option to renew or restore the name under the same commercial terms as the registrant. If the complainant renews or restores the name, the name will be placed in Registrar HOLD and Registrar LOCK status, the WHOIS contact information for the registrant will be removed, and the WHOIS entry will indicate that the name is subject to dispute. If the complaint is terminated, or the UDRP dispute finds against the complainant, the name will be deleted within 45 days. The registrant retains the right under the existing Redemption Grace Period provisions to recover the name at any time during the Redemption Grace Period, and retains the right to renew the name before it is deleted.
X) Automatic Domain Name Renewal
When you register a domain name successfully, automatic renewal isdisabled by default. If the automatic renewal option is selected, Batdomains.com Ltd. will automatically renew any domain name that is up for renewal and will take payment from the Payment Method the domain owner has on file with Batdomains.com Ltd.. Domain name renewals are non-refundable. If, for any reason, Batdomains.com Ltd. is not able to take payment from the Payment Method the domain owner has on file, and the domain owner fails to respond to our notices, the domain name will expire. By registering a domain name with Batdomains.com Ltd. you agree that Batdomains.com Ltd. will not be responsible for the expiry of domain names that fail to renew, either automatically or manually, subject to the terms and conditions laid out in this document.
