What Happens If You Forget to Extend Hosting & Domain?

By Cloudmatika 08 July, 2020


CLOUDMATIKA BLOG | Are you familiar with the terms VPS Hosting and domains? As internet users, these two are certainly familiar. It is the domain name that you type when browsing the internet. Domain names are unique names that are useful for the identification of your web server, email server, or computer server.

Have you known the function of the domain name? Its main function is to provide an easy access to the server. Domain name also makes you remember the server’s name that has been visited earlier, so you don’t need to bother taking note on the IP Address which usually consists of a series of complicated numbers.

On the other hand, VPS Hosting is the storage part or used to store the data needed for a website. VPS Hosting can be accessed through the internet.

With the current development of the internet, surely the need for domains and VPS Hosting has increased drastically. You can use domain for, let’s say, promotional purposes. In fact, using a brandable domain name can be a good investment to increase more trusts and traffic. Knowing the expire date of a domain is also as important as having a personalized domain name. A domain that has expired can cause fatal consequences. That’s why you must pay attention to the active period of the domain and VPS hosting of your website.

Here are some of the problems that occur when you forget to renew your hosting & domain

Busy days often make some people forget to extend the active period of their domains and VPS Hosting. Consider these before they happen to you:

1. Confused Visitors & Decreased Reputation

When your domain and VPS hosting expire, your website will be inaccessible. The losses can be considerably huge, especially when the website is for online store. This will make your customers feel confused as they found your website is inaccessible, and as a result, they may go to your competitors. Look how bad it is, right?

2. Dropped SEO Ranking

Not only will your reputation go down, your SEO ranking will also drop. It's very unfortunate if your professional website fails to be accessed. That way your SEO ranking sink and your website will no longer appear on the first page of Google.

3. Domains Get Deleted

If you don’t renew your outdated domain and hosting after 5 days, your domain and hosting will enter the ‘pending delete’ period. Your domain and hosting will be removed from the ICAAN within 3-5 days and you will not be able to restore them. It means that your domain and hosting are available on a first-come first-served basis for anyone to purchase as a new domain. Even though the unextended domain can be registered again, you have to wait for
80 days after the expiration date.

4. Website Was Temporarily Suspended

If you don’t extend your domain, the active period of your website will be expired. In general, the active period of a domain is 1 year. But different domain packages will have different active period as well, such as for 2-10 years. It is all based on the contract you choose. Whichever you choose; the most important thing is that you extend the domain before expiration date or your domain and hosting will get suspended and becomes inaccessible. However, if you are still on the renewal grace period (30 days), you can extend the domain with normal price.

5. Domain Email Get Suspended

Oudated domain and hosting will affect your email domain too. This can be extremely fatal considering the important role played by email, such as for your web hosting. With an email domain, you can send and compose emails without having to use third parties such as Gmail or Yahoo email. However, when you forget or don't renew your domain, you will no longer be able to both send and receive emails.

6. Fines For Late Payments

If you don’t extend your domain and hosting after 45 days, you have to pay a fine that costs 10 times the price of your domain within 5 days only. If you still cannot make payment at this period, then you will enter ‘pending delete period.
