And why is it so important?
ICANN is a non-profit public organisation, which makes policy and decisions for the Internet through a multi-stakeholder model. In particular for domain names, this organisation lays down the rules, like what happens with your domain name after your registration expiry date.
Well before the expiry date of your domain name, we will send you a notification via regular mail and e-mail. You can then choose to renew your domain name or let it expire.
If you ever forget to pay on time, do not panic! Thanks to the protection mechanism developed by ICANN, your domain is not automatically released to the public.
This is one of the many advantages of having your customer register a domain via an accredited partner such as Easyhost.
By registering your domain name with an accredited registrar such as Easyhost, you can benefit from the rights ICANN grants to domain names owners.
