DEP is like insurance for your registered domain. It keeps your domain secure after it expires. You’ll retain ownership of your domain, so you won’t risk having to buy it back from a reseller for a hefty price. Plus, any reinstatement fees are covered.
DEP is tied to an existing renewal term. If you buy or renew your domain for 1 year and add DEP, the protection is good until the end of that year. It will not carry over if you renew for additional years after the transaction.
DEP will kick in so you have nothing to worry about. Your domain will be protected for one year until your domain renews again.
Once DEP is activated, you’ll still need to pay for the renewal of the domain to have all the functionality restored.
DEP is one flat price that lasts for the duration of your domain term. If you purchase or renew your domain for 1 year, it will last 1 year. If you purchase or renew your domain for 8 years, it will last the entire 8 years. DEP is connected to your domain purchase and offers extra value and longer term protection when purchasing or renewing the associated domain for longer periods.
Because your domain is expired, it will not function. DEP makes sure it will remain in your account–under your ownership–for one year.
