Domain names are automatically renewed after registering them through us. However, you may find a time when you no longer need one and want to cancel it. You may be changing names or building a new site altogether. In this guide we will show you how to cancel a domain registration from your AMP.

Note: Domain names are often renewed up to 2 weeks prior to their expiration date and are NON-refundable. Be sure to cancel your domain name before the two week window to ensure it cancels properly.

Cancelling a Domain Registration

  1. Login to AMP.
  2. In the main menu, move your mouse over the Billing option, and click My Subscriptions.
  3. Find your domain on the My Subscriptions page, and click the "X" to the right.
  4. Confirm you want to cancel your domain registration on the next screen by clicking the Submit button.


    You will then see a message stating "You have cancelled your Domain Registration subscription."

Congratulations, now you know how to cancel your domain registration from your AMP!

Hello Milo,

Thank you for your question about when a cancelled domain will become available. Typically, 30 days after a domain expires, it goes into a Redemption period. You can look up a domain's expiration date in the Whois record.

The Redemption period usually lasts about 100 days and allows the owner to re-claim the domain before it is released to the general public.

So, as a general estimate for how long it will take for a domain to become available to the public is 130 days.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

If I wanted to register my domain name to another service, would I be able to within the first thirty days? Thank you!

Hell Milo,

I'm not quite sure what you mean. You are unable to switch registrars within the first 60 days according to ICANN's rules. However, you can change the data on the domain (owner, registration info, etc) whenever you like.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
