Registrar Incentives: Sponsoring Registrar will receive a 15% discount on all Sunrise registrations. This discount may be processed as an immediate reduction of the resulting invoice, or as a credit against future registration activity, at the Registry Operator's discretion.

Grace Periods

Sunrise Add Grace Period: For domain registrations resulting from Sunrise Period applications, the domain will have a Sunrise Add Grace Period lasting 5 days. During this period, Registrars can delete the domain and avoid charges.

Add Grace Period: For 5 days after registering a domain, Registrars can delete the domain without being charged, and the domain will be open for re-registration.

Auto-Renew Grace Period: Upon its expiration, a domain name will be automatically renewed for 1 year. For 45 days after a domain expires, Registrars can delete the domain to avoid being charged for this renewal.

Redemption Grace Period: For 30 days after a domain is deleted, a Registrar may redeem the domain, subject to the Registrar Abuse Policy and the applicable restore fees. This only applies to fully registered domains that are deleted, not to deletions of domains pending registrations or domains deleted during the Add Grace Period or Sunrise Add Grace Period.
