Terms of Service


21.29 .asia Specific Terms

The following clause (21.29) applies specifically to .asia domain names.

21.29.1 .asia Domain Name Licence Terms

Your application for a .asia domain name license implies understanding and agreement to all policies held by us, the Registry Operator (DotAsia) and ICANN.

Registrant agrees to maintain up to date and correct registration information for any domain name during the entirety of its registration term. It is the registrants responsibility to ensure the domain name license is secured and that it is held should you wish to continue after expiry.

Dreamscape Networks International Pte Ltd do not operate any part of the domain name systems, or grant licensing for domain names. Dreamscape Networks International Pte Ltd is the registrar for .asia domain names.

This document contains the terms and conditions that apply between you, us and the services provided by the registrar.

21.29.2 .asia Redemption

Upon the expiry of a domain name (Domain Object), the name is not immediately purged from the registry and available for registration. The following URL describes the general lifecycle for a domain namehttps://www.icann.org/resources/pages/gtld-lifecycle-2012-02-25-en

A domain may be recovered from redemption at any time during this 30 day period. A fee will apply in which the first year of renewal is included. This fee is collected by on behalf on the registry.

Should a domain not be recovered from redemption is will be struck from the registry and released.

Renewal Process:

  • On expiry date, CLIENTHOLD status is added to the domain, stopping it from resolving any DNS records.
  • Client is given 30 days past the expiry date to renew. Failure to renew will result in us cancelling the domain name from the registry, sending the domain name to REDEMPTION for 30 days. While in Redemption, the domain can be recovered (For a fee that we pay the registry).
  • After 30 days in REDEMPTION, the domain name enters PENDINGDELETE for 5 days (domain cannot be recovered from us at this time) before being deleted from the registry completely and being made available for re-registration. The chances of re-registering are very slim due to the domain name aftermarket/speculation on expired domains.
  • The domain name will be deleted from the .com registry and will enter the REDEMPTION status then PENDINGDELETE as per gTLD expiry cycle.https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/gtld-lifecycle-2012-02-25-en
