1 Renewal restrictions

Your .nu domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether the domain name is auto-renewed or renewed manually. Auto-renewal is attempted on the first day of the month prior to the domain name's expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal on the 10th of the month and again on the 20th of the month.

If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption. See Recovering Expired Domain Names for instructions on the redemption.

For example: Your .nu domain name expires on October 10. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by September 20. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on September 1, September 10, and September 20.

2 Account change restrictions

When the domain name is moved, the registrant's first name, last name, and company name cannot be changed.

3 Contact update requirements

To change the domain name's registrant information, please call our support team for assistance.

Changes to other domain name contact information are done through the Domain Manager. See Change domain contact information for information on this process.

4 Refund requirements
