This type of domain is deleted from the registry and is then re-registered by our system. As a result, this is a new domain, and does not keep its original creation date. As this domain has a new creation date (the day our system re-registered it) it will expire one year from that new creation/registration date.
This type of domain is not deleted from the registry, and thus keeps its original creation date. These domains have not been renewed by the previous registrant. The sponsoring registrar renews the domain for one year, but by the time the domain is available on NameJet, it is entirely possible that less than one year remains on the registration. Check the registry's website to get current registration and expiration dates on Pre-Release domains.
Pre-Release status domains may also be listed by private sellers. In this case the domain will retain its original creation date, but may be sold at any time. In some cases there may only be six months on the domain, and others may have a few years. Check the registry's website to get current registration and expiration dates on these domains as well.
In all cases, be sure to monitor your domain expiration dates within your account with the sponsoring registrar once the domain has been delivered to you.
