    Active domain on hold

    How can that be?
    According to whois.sc
    It's on hold
    Active
    Expires next year
    It doesn't work

    I guess there's an easy answer to that!?

    when a domain expire the registry add 1 year and waits for the registrar to send DELETE command and delete the domain.

    registrar asks the customer to renew and wait from 1 - 45 days

    if customer did not renew, registrar send DELETE command to registry and domain status change from registrar-hold to redemption period and refund the registrar the year he added while waiting for the customer.

    Hi Bashar and thank you very much for your prompt reply.
    I understand why it expires next year now.
    What I don't understand is why it's status is set to ACTIVE.
    What does that mean?

    thats cached entry in whois.sc database

    for most accurate data goto http://www.internic.net/whois.html

    you will see the registry expire date 1 year more and if you query the registrar whois server you will see its expiration date set to this year.
