Dedicated Servers automatically renew on their anniversary date until explicitly cancelled by

Client Area are valid and are to be
functional until the final cancellation of the respective service.
Domain Name Registration / Transfer - Lithium Hosting, llc
offers for registration/transfer all TLDs (Top-Level Domains) displayed in the table
page. The TLDs can be purchased either together with a shared hosting account (at
regular or PROMOTIONAL price) or separately as an upgrade from the
Client Area (all
TLDs - at NON-PROMOTIONAL prices).
Domain names are valid for the number of years of their registration (domain names can be
registered for the period of 1 to 10 years, depending on their TLD - top-level domain name -
extension). After an expiration of a domain name several stages follow regarding its
The domain name Redemption Grace Period (RGP) is a registry level period of up to 30 days
after the domain name's expiration date. During this period the domain name is kept on
hold by the Registrar before it gets deleted. The domain registrant is allowed to
retrieve the domain name from deletion, but this process costs additional redemption
fee. This extra 30-day period extends the time available for renewing domain names.
However, all domains that enter a redemption period are removed from the zone files (the
list of domain names currently in the global DNS), therefore any web site or e-mail
services associated with the domain name will stop working.
Extended Redemption Grace Period - the extended redemption grace period adds another 7 -
30 days to the domain name's redemption period. During this period the domain name owner
is allowed to retrieve the domain name from deletion paying the redemption fee.
After the redemption period of an expired domain name is finished, comes the Pending
Delete Period - a registry level period of up to 5 days during which no one is allowed
to renew the domain name and it cannot be newly registered because it's still not
returned to the public pool of domain names.
Released by Registry Period - the domain name is sent back into the public pool of domain
names and is newly available for registration.
Customers are advised to renew their domain registrations before their domain names are placed
into redemption. When a domain name transits into redemption period, DNS, Email, and the web
site and any other associated services will cease to function.
During a domain name's redemption period, we can assist the customer in retrieving his/her
domain name from deletion only if the domain name was registered with us. The customer will need
to pay a REDEMPTION FEE of up to $270.00 USD for the domain registration renewal. If the domain
name was registered with another registrar, the customer needs to contact that registrar for
more information regarding its redemption.
