Renew domain names that are in RGP status, in near-real time. This command charges not only the usual renewal fee, but also the higher redemption fee.


Use this command to extend names that are in RGP status. This command does not yet accommodate names in Extended RGP status. Use the GetExpiredDomains command to check a name’s status.

RGP redemptions are performed at the Registry and generally take at least 3 hours to complete. When you run this command, we recommend that you store the Order ID so that you can check progress conveniently using the GetOrderDetail command.

This command will result in both a redemption and a renewal charge for the domain name. We recommend that you check the RGP redemption price before running this command, as it can be quite high.


All resellers have access to this command.
