What is redemption period status?
A period of time after domain registration has expired where the previous owner can bring the registration current by paying applicable fees to the registrar.
There is a min. redemption period, but some registrars differ. A name that is in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status will not be included in the zone file. A registrar cannot modify or purge a name in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status.
The only action a registrar can take on a name in REDEMPTIONPERIOD is to request that it be restored.
Restoration from redemption period cost is higher than renewal fee.
