By default, we’ll auto-renew your domain for you. The only reason we will not renew it is if your payment fails or you ask us to stop your subscription by turning the auto-renew toggle off in Domain Name in Startup Hub.
At the expiry date, if the domain has not been renewed, you will lose access to it and any services or products attached to it will cease to work. After expiry you will have up to 30 days in which you can renew the domain name and re-activate any services attached to it, at the standard renewal cost. After another 30 days, the domain name license will be suspended and will enter a 60 day grace period called the redemption period. During this time, you will have the option to keep the domain by paying an additional fee, called a redemption fee, in addition to the renewal fee. You will be able to do this in the Tide Domains portal. If you do not do this before the redemption period is up, your registration will be deleted and the domain will be made available for anyone to register.
