1 Renewal restrictions

Auto-renewal is attempted one day prior to the domain name's expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal 5 days later and again 12 days after that.

If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 25th day after the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption. Your domain name will be deleted and removed from your account if not renewed by the 59th day following expiration.

3 Transfers away requirements

To transfer your .PH domain name to a new registrar, you must send an email transfer request from the registrant contact email address listed in your GoDaddy account to registrar@dot.ph. (i.e. - "Please transfer my domain [domain name] to registrar [registrar name]").

An automated transfer domain confirmation notice will be sent to the registrant contact email address, and will require online confirmation via the link provided.

Upon confirmation from the registrant contact email address, we will receive a transfer domain notification email asking whether we approve or deny the transfer. Once we have responded, the transfer will be processed.

4 Contact updates requirements

For updates to the following fields, contact our support department for assistance:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Organization (company name)

You can update all other contact information in the Domain Manager. See Change domain contact information for information.
