The initial registration period of a .LC domain name covers the period up to and including the expiration date shown. Domain names are automatically renewed by the automated registry system on the expiration date, but the renewal fees may not have been paid. Therefore, Nic.LC allows registrants certain grace periods to settle their outstanding renewal fees before deleting domain names for which renewal fees are not received.
If payment for registration, renewal and other fees are not made during the specified time frame governed by the Grace Periods (Grace Periods), domain names may be put on HOLD and then DELETED for non-payment of fees.
For the registration fees, DELETION of domain names will occur if payment is not received 5 days after the initial registration.
For renewal fees, domain names for which fees have not been received will be put on HOLD 25 days after the expiration date.
For renewal fees, domain names for which fees have not been received will be DELETED 30 days after the expiration date.
DELETED domain names are automatically kept in the system for 5 days after the deletion and then removed completely from the registry database.
DELETED domain names, once removed from the automated registry, are available once more to anyone for re-registration.
If a domain name is DELETED and a registrant makes payment within 5 days after the deletion, it may be possible to reverse the DELETION and restore the domain name to the registrant before it is completely removed from the registry database.
