When domain name is first created, it goes directly to ʹokʹ status. In ʹokʹ status registrar can perform all modification requests such as update, renew or delete. Using update request it is possible to set client statuses clientUpdateProhibited, clientTransferProhibited, clientDeleteProhibited or clientRenewProhibited.

When a domain expires – the expiration date passes, the domain goes to autoRenew status for two weeks. This status does not prevent the registrar from performing domain requests, the behaviour is the same as in ʹokʹ status. The meaning of this status is that it is possible to delete the domain without effective billed renewal. After the autoRenew period if there is no delete domain renew is confirmed and the domain has to be paid for.

After performing delete command the domain goes into pendingDelete status, with rgp status ʹredemptionPeriodʹ. This state will last for two weeks. It is possible to restore a domain using restore request (implemented in RGP extended update command). After restoration the domain goes back to ʹokʹ status and is renewed. If it is not restored, the domain goes to pendingDelete status and pendingDelete rgp status and will soon be deleted and available for registration again.

When there is transfer requested, domain is in transferPending status, which prevents the registrar to perform any operations with the domain name. After transfer is approved, auto-approved, cancelled or rejected, domain goes back to ʹokʹ status. Domain transfer will renew domain for one year.
