For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the Standard Terms, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. Look under BOTH of the following categories:
1 Renewal Restrictions
You can renew .nl domain names when they are within six months of the expiration date, but you must renew them before their expiration dates. The renewal date depends on whether you set the domain name to auto-renew or manually renew. We attempt auto-renewal on the 1st 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, you can attempt to recover it. See Recovering expired domain names for instructions on the redemption.
For example: Your .nl 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 6, September 13, and September 20.
2 Transfers In Requirements
When a .nl domain is transferred, any registration period longer than 1 year does not carry over to the new registrar.
3 Transfers Away Restrictions
To transfer your .nl domain to another registrar, the domain does not need to be unlocked. You must submit the transfer with the gaining registrar, who will require the registrant to provide an authorization code. Please contact our award-winning GoDaddy Guides to request the authorization code.
4 Account Change Restrictions
When you move a .nl domain to another account you cannot change the registrant's first name, last name, or organization. Please choose the "do not change" option for the contact information during the account change process.
5Contact Update Restrictions
For changes to the registrant information on your .nl domain name, please contact our support team for assistance.
Changes to all other domain name contacts can be made through the Domain Manager. See Change my domain contact information for information on this process.
