What are the statuses of international domains

When you check your domain through the Whois service, you may see that your domain has a status field with some value. What are the statuses of domains and what they mean, we have described in the table below.

There are two types of domain statuses – server statuses and client statuses. Server statuses are prioritized and set by the registry, and client statuses are set by the domain registrar.

Client domain statuses

Status codeWhat does that mean?Do I need to do something?
clientDeleteProhibitedThis status tells the domain registry to reject domain deletion requests.This status means that the domain cannot be removed from the registry, which prevents unauthorized removal through hacking or attack. If you want to remove the domain, you must first contact your registrar and ask them to remove this status.
clientHoldThis status code tells your domain registrar not to activate the DNS domain and therefore it will not be available. This is a rare situation that occurs when the domain is in dispute, the domain is not paid or marked for deletion.Often this status indicates a problem with your domain that needs to be resolved. If this is the case, you should contact your registrar to resolve the problem. If there is no problem with your domain, but you need the domain to be accessible, you should first contact your registrar and ask them to remove this status code.
clientRenewProhibitedThis status tells the domain registry to reject domain renewal requests. This is a rare status that is usually used in case of litigation or if your domain is to be deleted.Often this status indicates a problem with your domain that needs to be resolved. If this is the case, you should contact your registrar to resolve the problem. If there is no problem with your domain and you just want to renew it, you should first contact your registrar and ask to have this status code removed.
clientTransferProhibitedThis status tells the domain registry to reject all requests to transfer your domain from your current registrar to another.With this status, the domain cannot be transferred to another registrar, which helps prevent unauthorized domain transfers as a result of hacking. If you want to transfer the domain, you should first contact your registrar and ask them to remove this status.
clientUpdateProhibitedThis status prohibits requests to renew the domain.This domain status indicates that the domain cannot be updated, which can help prevent unauthorized updates due to fraud. If you want to update the data in your domain, you must first contact your registrar and ask to have this status code removed.

Server statuses of domains

Status codeWhat does that mean?Do I need to do something?
addPeriodThis grace period is granted after the initial registration of the domain name. If the registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the registry may return the value of the domain to the registrar.This is the information status set for the first few days of your domain registration. There are no problems with your domain name.
autoRenewPeriodThis grace period is granted upon expiration of the domain name registration period and is automatically extended (renewed) by the Registry. If the registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the registry provides credit to the registrar for the renewal cost.This is an informative status set for a limited time after your domain is automatically updated by the registry. If you no longer wish to keep it (i.e. pay a renewal fee), you should contact your registrar immediately to discuss your available options.
inactiveThis status code indicates that the delegation information (name servers) has not been linked to your domain. Your domain is not activated in DNS and will not be resolved.If your domain has remained in this state for several days, you may contact your registrar to request information about the processing delay.
If the TLD requires documentation for registration, you may need to provide the necessary documentation.
okThis is the default status for a domain, which means that there are no pending transactions or restrictions for the domain.You can contact your registrar to set restrictions on your domain, statuses such as clientTransferProhibited, clientDeleteProhibited, and clientUpdateProhibited, can prevent unauthorized domain transfers, updates, or deletions.
pendingCreateThis status means that the request to create a domain has been received and is being processed.If the domain zone is in a special registration period (such as rise), this may indicate that the domain name will be allocated at the end of such period.
If the domain zone is not in the special registration period and you are NOT listed with the Registrant, you should contact your Registrar immediately to resolve the issue.
pendingDeleteThis status code can be mixed with redemptionPeriod or pendingRestore. In this case, depending on the state (i.e. redemptionPeriod or pendingRestore) set in the domain name, the corresponding description above applies. If this state is not combined with redemptionPeriod or pendingRestore status, the pendingDelete status code indicates that your domain has been in redemptionPeriod status for 30 days, and you have not restored it within this 30-day period. Your domain will remain in this state for a few days, after which your domain will be cleared and removed from the registry database.
After deletion, the domain becomes available for re-registration in accordance with the registry policy.
If you want to keep your domain name, you should contact your registrar immediately to discuss your options.
pendingRenewThis status code indicates that your domain renewal request has been received and is being processed.If you haven’t asked to renew your domain and no longer want to keep it (i.e. pay for the renewal), you should contact your registrar immediately to discuss the options available to you.
pendingRestoreThis status code indicates that your registrar has asked the registry to restore your domain that was in redemptionPeriod status. Your registry will hold the domain in this state while your registrar provides the necessary documentation to recover the domain. If your registrar does not provide documentation to the registry operator within the specified time period to validate the redemption request, the domain will revert to redemptionPeriod.Keep an eye on your domain status codes during this often-defined seven-day period to ensure that your registrar has submitted the correct recovery documentation within the timeframe. If this period has ended and your domain has returned to redemptionPeriod status, contact your registrar to resolve any issues that may have prevented delivery of the necessary documentation to restore your domain.
pendingTransferThis status code indicates that a request to transfer your domain to a new registrar has been received and is being processed.If you have not requested the transfer of your domain, you should immediately contact your registrar to have them deny the transfer request on your behalf.
pendingUpdateThis status code indicates that a request to update your domain has been received and is being processed.If you have not requested an update to your domain, you should contact your registrar immediately to resolve the issue.
redemptionPeriodThis status code indicates that your registrar has asked the registry to remove your domain. Your domain will be held in this state for 30 days. Five calendar days after the end of the redemptionPeriod, your domain is removed from the Registry database and becomes available for registration.If you want to keep your domain, you should contact your registrar immediately to resolve any issues that led to your registrar requesting the deletion of your domain, resulting in a redemptionPeriod status for your domain. Once all outstanding issues are resolved and the appropriate fee is paid, your registrar should restore the domain on your behalf.
renewPeriodThis grace period is granted after the registrar explicitly renews (extends) the domain name registration period. If the registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the registry provides credit to the registrar for the renewal cost.This is an information status set for a limited period or renewal of your domain by your registrar. If you haven’t asked to renew your domain and no longer want to keep it (i.e. pay for the renewal), you should contact your registrar immediately to discuss the options available to you.
serverDeleteProhibitedThis status code prevents your domain from being deleted. This is an unusual status that is usually set up during litigation, at your request, or with redemptionPeriod status.This status may indicate a problem with your domain that needs to be resolved. If so, you should contact your registrar to request more information and resolve the issue. If your domain does not have a problem and you just want to delete it, you must first contact your registrar and have them contact the registry operator to remove this status code.
In addition, some registry operators offer a registry lock service that allows registrants, through their registrars, to set this status as additional protection against unauthorized deletion. Removing this status may take longer than for clientDeleteProjected, because your registrar must redirect your request to your domain registry and wait for them to remove the restriction.
serverHoldThis status code is set by your domain registry operator. Your domain is not activated in DNS.If you have provided delegation information (name servers), this status may indicate a problem with your domain that needs to be resolved. If so, you should contact your registrar to request more information. If your domain does not have problems, but you need to resolve them in DNS, you must first contact your registrar to provide the necessary delegation information.
serverRenewProhibitedThis status code indicates that your domain registry operator will not allow your registrar to renew your domain. This is an unusual status that usually applies during legal disputes or when your domain is to be deleted.Often this status indicates a problem with your domain that needs to be fixed quickly. You should contact your registrar to request more information and resolve the issue. If your domain does not have a problem and you just want to renew it, you should first contact your registrar and ask them to cooperate with the registry operator to remove this status code. This process may take longer than for clientRenewProjected, as your registrar must redirect your request to your domain registry and wait for them to remove the restriction.
serverTransferProhibitedThis status code prevents your domain from being transferred from your current registrar to another. This is an unusual status that is usually accepted during legal or other disputes, at your request, or if you have redemptionPeriod status.This status may indicate a problem with your domain that needs to be fixed quickly. You should contact your registrar to request additional information and to resolve the issue. If your domain does not have a problem and you just want to transfer it to another registrar, you should first contact your registrar and have them contact the registry operator to remove this status code.
In addition, some registry operators offer a registry blocking service that allows registrants, through their registrars, to set this status as additional protection against unauthorized transfers. Removing this status may take longer than for clientTransferProjected, because your registrar has to redirect your request to your domain registry and wait for them to remove the restriction.
serverUpdateProhibitedThis status code blocks your domain, preventing it from being updated. This is an unusual status that is usually set up during litigation, at your request, or with redemptionPeriod status.This status may indicate a problem with your domain that needs to be resolved. If so, you should contact your registrar for more information or to resolve the problem. If your domain does not have a problem and you just want to update it, you should first contact your registrar and ask them to cooperate with the registry operator to remove this status code.
In addition, some registry operators offer a registry lock service that allows registrants, through their registrars, to set this status as additional protection against unauthorized updates. Removing this status may take longer than for clientUpdateProjected, because your registrar has to redirect your request to your domain registry and wait for them to remove the restriction.
transferPeriodThis grace period is granted after a domain name is successfully transferred from one registrar to another. If the new registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the Registry provides credit to the registrar for the cost of the transfer.This is an information status set for a limited period of time or transferring your domain to a new registrar.
