Did Uniregistry just change their grace renewal period?

    I am seeing domains now moved in Domain Archive folder after 30 days, rather than the 40 days they had previously allowed, anyone else noticing this? I didn't get any notice of any changes.

    The move by Uniregistry to move the past expired domains into Domain Archive where you cannot see them in your Domains Manager, so less likely to renew them doesn't seem like a good move personally for users.

    It looks like Uniregistry will be changing the grace period from 40 days to 30 days, and then charging a late renewal fee between 30-40 days, which I have no idea of the amount.

    Supposedly the TOS update will be sent out in a few days updating for such a scenario.

    Just noticed the same, very irritating. When googling about this, I read about a new deal with Dynadot to have expired Uniregistry domains listed there for auction. Still waiting for an official statement from Uni about this. And wondering how long (after expiration) domains are safe at Uni, and when they could be sent to auction...

    Hopefully there is also a way to "opt out" of such account "enhancements".

    The Uni names have stopped coming to Dynadot, they had been coming thru, but people have been bidding hundreds, if not tens of thouands only to see the domains renewed, and auctions cancelled, and funds credited in dynadot credits into accounts.

    Check out this story:
