When you check the domain through the Whois service, you can see that your domain has a status field with some value.

    There are two types of domain statuses - server statuses and client statuses

    Server statuses are prioritized and set by the registry, and client statuses are set by the domain registrar.

    *Customer statuses of domains:

    • clientDeleteProhibited - the status tells the domain registry to reject requests to delete a domain. The status means that the domain cannot be removed from the registry, which prevents unauthorized removal as a result of hacking or attack

    • clientHold - status code tells your domain registrar not to activate DNS domain and therefore it will not be available. Status when support of the domain name is suspended. The domain is not delegated.

    • clientRenewProhibited - The status tells the domain registry to reject requests for domain renewal. Usually set when the domain is renewed for the maximum possible period.

    • clientTransferProhibited - status when domain registrar change cannot be initiated in the registry. This status is set automatically during domain registration for protection against unauthorized registrar change, it is removed by the registrar at the client's request during domain transfer.

    • clientUpdateProhibited - status prohibits requests for domain update. Prohibited status prohibits changes in the domain data, including changes in the data of the domain owner. As a rule, this status is applied at client's request.

    Server statuses of domains:*

    • addPeriod - a grace period is granted after the initial registration of a domain name. If the registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the registry may return the cost of the domain to the registrar.

    • autoRenewPeriod - the grace period is granted upon expiration of the domain name registration period and is automatically renewed (renewed) by the Registry. If the Registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the Registry provides a credit to the Registrar for the cost of renewal.

    • inactive - The status code indicates that the delegation information (name servers) has not been linked to your domain. Your domain is not activated in DNS and will not be resolved.

    • ok - standard status for the domain, which means that there are no pending operations or restrictions for the domain.

    • pendingCreate - status means that request for domain creation has been received and is being processed.

    • pendingRenew - status code indicates that your domain renewal request has been received and is being processed.

    • pendingTransfer - the status code indicates that the request to transfer your domain to a new registrar has been received and is being processed.

    • pendingUpdate - the status code indicates that your domain renewal request has been received and is being processed.

    • redemptionPeriod - A status code indicates that your registrar has asked the registry to remove your domain. Your domain will be held in this state for 30 days. Five calendar days after the end of redemptionPeriod, your domain is removed from the Registry database and becomes available for registration.

    • renewPeriod - A grace period is granted after the registrar explicitly renews (extends) the domain name registration period. If the registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the Registry grants credit to the registrar for the renewal cost.

    • serverDeleteProhibited - the status code prevents your domain from being deleted. This is a status that is usually set during litigation, at your request, or if there is a redemptionPeriod status.

    • serverHold - the status code is set by your domain registry operator. Your domain is not activated in DNS.

    • serverRenewProhibited - The status code indicates that your domain registry operator will not allow your registrar to renew your domain. This is the status that usually applies during legal disputes or when your domain is to be deleted.

    • serverTransferProhibited - The status code prevents your domain from being transferred from your current registrar to another. This is a status that usually applies during legal or other disputes, at your request, or when your domain has redemptionPeriod status.

    • serverUpdateProhibited - the status code blocks your domain, preventing it from being updated. This is the status, which is usually set during legal disputes, at your request, or if you have redemptionPeriod status.

    • transferPeriod - a grace period is granted after a successful transfer of a domain name from one registrar to another. If the new registrar deletes the domain name during this period, the Registry provides credit to the registrar for the transfer fee.
