Undoing the cancellation of a domain name
For forty days after you cancel a domain name, it can't be re-registered by anyone except you. It's 'in quarantine'. So, if your name's cancelled by mistake, or you change your mind, you can get your name back.
Step-by-step instructions for undoing a cancellation
Ask your registrar to undo the cancellation.
Your quarantined domain name can be reinstated by the same registrar (hosting service provider) you had before, or by a new one. The registrar will arrange things with us.
Important: only you – the old registrant – can get your quarantined domain name reinstated. If you're not sure whose name you registered the domain name in, use the Whois.
We'll reactivate the domain name.
We'll send confirmation to the administrative contact's mailbox and to your registrar. Reactivation takes effect immediately.
You settle up with your registrar.
We'll charge your registrar for reactivating your quarantined domain name. What you pay is between you and your registrar.
