Note: IBM Bluemix reserves the right to supplement and/or amend, at any time, the terms and conditions of its DRA. IBM Bluemix will notify its Customers through the customer portal of any changes to the DRA. It is the Customer's responsibility to review IBM Bluemix's policies on a frequent basis to ensure compliance because the DRA in place at the current time applies, not the DRA which was in place when you registered your domain(s) through IBM Bluemix. Changes requested by Customer to the DRA must be agreed to in writing by IBM Bluemix.

Domain Registrant Rights and Responsibilities

Auto-Renewal & Deletion Policy
If a domain name is not renewed within 40 days of expiration, the expired domain name is moved into the "Redemption Grace Period*" at the end of that 40-day period. The domain name stays in this redemption state for 30 days. At the end of this 30-day period, the domain name is then moved into the “Pending Delete” status, and cannot be renewed either by the end-user or by IBM Bluemix. The domain name remains in “Pending Delete” status for no more than 10 days, at which point the domain name is released by the registry, and may be re-registered by the public. IBM Bluemix does not auto-renew domain names outside of extenuating circumstances, as defined by ICANN or directed by a court order.

* Renewal during the Redemption Grace Period costs $200 in addition to normal domain renewal charges.
