How the Pending Delete period works?
After redemption period, domain is entering into termination period and gain status “pendingDelete”. Domain termination process can take up to 5 days and disallow any updates to the domain, in other words – domain restoration in termination period is not possible. Once the 5 days have passed, the domain is released and the zone file are deleted.
When the Pending Delete period ends and the domain is released, it will be available across all registrars .
Termination process perform following operations:
1. Removal Domain and all related connections from ST Registry domains repository
2. Remove records from WHOIS database
3. Release domain for general availability
This period finalise domain life cycle and ends its existence 75 days after domain expire date was reached.
