IMPORTANT: Changes to .CO Renewal Handling

Effective immediately, the process for .CO domain renewals has changed. Non-renewed domains, including domains set to AUTOEXPIRE or AUTODELETE, will only be deleted 44 days after the expiration date.  At the point of expiration (expiration date) these domains get suspended by the registry and stop resolving. Please note that during this period of 44 days, .CO domains can still be renewed by the reseller by simply sending a renew command. The renewal of .CO domains set to AUTORENEW will be finalized on the expiration date, to prevent the registry from suspending them.


Improvements to dot DK Renewals and Transfers

Effective immediately, .DK expiration dates have now been directly aligned with the DK Registry. This means the expiration date for any DK domain is now at the end of the month in which the domain was originally is set to expire.  For example, if a domain's expiration date was August 04, the new expiration date is now August 31.  Additionally, FINALIZATION and FAILURE PERIODS have changed from -6 days to -3 days, allowing for better renewal and deletion flexibility.

.DK domain transfers have now been fully automated. Billing for .DK domains changes to our registrar at the point of transfer submission.  Please note, that it is the DK Registry that informs the registrant of the record of the change.  Transfers are only permitted after an approval from the registrant.
