Domain name is registered for a certain period of time (from 1 to 10 years). After this period, the domain support is terminated, domain itself goes into the registry for removal and in about a month it gets completely removed from the base. After the termination of support, your domain becomes unavailable. This means that users won’t be able to visit your site and send you a mail. During this period, you are still able to restore and renew your domain by paying for it. When you domain is already removed, it can be intercepted by a competitor or a cybersquatter. No one can guarantee purposes you domain can be used for.
To renew domain, you need to pay for the next period of its registration. Depending on the domain zone, you can renew a domain for the period of 1 to 10 years.
