It will remain online for 10 days after expiration,
during which time you may request that it be restored; but must pay the full restore price of €18,98.
After these 10 days, the domain is deactivated and taken offline. It then enters a 60 grace period,
during which time you may still request that it be restored, again at full price. If, after the total of 70 days, it has still not been
restored; it will no longer be recoverable. It enters an off-limits, quarantine period of 7 days. At the conclusion of the 7 day

functioning. However, it is entirely possible to restore the domain name
during the deactivation period.
After a 60-day deactivation period, the domain name is deregistered and
