  • Grace Period Changes

    The grace period for .MY domain renewals has been updated to last for 1 to 30 days after the domain expiry date. During this time, you can renew your domain at a slightly higher rate.

This change encourages domain owners to renew their domains promptly and avoid potential issues caused by domain expiry.
  • Redemption Period Updates

    Following the grace period, a redemption period will start from 31 to 55 days after the domain expiry date. During this time, you can still recover your domain, but with an additional redemption fee. For domains, the redemption fee is RM80, while for .my domains, the renewal fee is RM120. It is essential to renew your domain as early as possible to avoid these additional fees.

Important Notice for Renewal Fee and Redemption Period

** Renewal/redemption period follows expiry date at, and not billing/invoice date.
Please ensure that the expiry date is correct, or contact if there are any problems. Domain owners should contact in case of any variance in the expiry date and rectify it as soon as possible.

**Please note that premium domain names will be subject to double the renewal cost. It is advisable for users to renew their domains early to avoid any additional charges during the grace or redemption periods. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the recent updates in the .MY domain lifecycle, or any other domain registration matters, please don’t hesitate to contact for assistance.

**In an effort to emphasize the importance of timely domain renewals, consider this example: if you own a unique domain such as AA.MY, registered before 31 Dec 2022, the renewal fee is only RM120. However, failing to renew your domain and allowing it to drop could result in significant consequences. The registration fee for such a domain could skyrocket to RM18,000, with an annual renewal fee of RM4,000 – that’s more than 150 times the original renewal cost! This example highlights the critical nature of renewing your domains early, not only to save money but also to maintain control over your valuable digital assets.
