30 days for renewal after expiration. After that date, it would be canceled and could be registered by any other person.
According to current policies, the administrative contact person must reside permanently in El Salvador.
This extension does not require technical requirements for registration.
The registration process begins upon receipt of payment for your order.
The approximate time for domain activation and delegation is 2-3 business days. After this time, it could take 24-48 hours for the DNS of your newly activated domain name to propagate.
To carry out domain transfers you will need your current provider to give you with the AuthCode or EPP-Key of the domain, with it you demonstrate the ownership of the domain.
Transfers take 5-7 days to complete. Some registrars allow you to accept transfers manually, contact your current provider and find out if they offer this type of service, so the transfer will be completed the same day.
The domains, once the transfer is complete, extend the expiration date by one year.
The renewals have a period of 24 hours.
It is recommended to renew before the expiration date to avoid temporary suspension.
It is possible to request the cancellation of a domain, you must do it via ticket (support area). Keep in mind that the cancellation does not imply the payment of the amount paid by the domain.
The modification of DNS is immediate, keep in mind that they will have to propagate through the network, this process usually takes between 2 and 48 hours to propagate correctly, so the previous server could appear active during that time.
In order to proceed with an ownership change of many domains, it's necessary that both the current and new owner accept this change. Once the ownership change is completed the domain is locked for transfers for a 60-day period, during this time the domain won't be able to be transferred to another registrar.
SV domains require an Administrative Local Contact that represent your company.
We will need the name, phone, and address of that person in order to process the registration.
If you do not have any, you could purchase this representation for an additional fee of $20 USD / year.
With the representation, we will assign our representative in the name of your company to allow you can activate the domain requested.
