An interesting comment concerning the Redemption Grace Period was sent to the ALAC’s forum list yesterday. The story: A registrant doesn’t get renewal notices from his registrar (Network Solutions) — but, after expiry, there is an offer to use the Redemption Grace Period to get the domain name back, for $ 150 instead of the usual $ 30. Apparently, an attempt to transfer the domain name away from NSI had failed earlier on.Update: A similar story is told in this message to Dave Farber’s IP list. This particular registrant seems to believe that the domain name in question was successfully transferred away from NSI prior to expiry, though.
