Verisign® Restore Services and ConsoliDate

Respond to Lost Domain Names with Verisign® Restore Services

Most registrants forget about their domain name registration until they receive a renewal notice. Sometimes the notice gets lost or misplaced on a long to-do list. When the website disappears or email starts to bounce, the registrar receives a panicked call. Verisign Restore Services allow your customers to re-activate a deleted domain name and have their domain name resolve within 30 days of deletion.

Support Your High-Value Customers with ConsoliDate

By offering a choice of renewal date, registrars help high-volume customers better manage large domain name portfolios and offer flexibility to all registrants. ConsoliDate gives registrants with .com and .net domain names the option to select a single renewal date for multiple domain names. ConsoliDate is easily integrated with your existing EPP Interface using the domain update function.
