Final Notice to Renew .Ly Libyan Domains

Registrants of .LY domains had a silver lining during the Libyan war. The .LY registry unilaterally extended the redemption period for .LY domains until the end of 2011, which meant that even domains that had expired early in the year were given an extended grace period until the end of 2011. Well, the end of 2011 is tomorrow! So better pay up and help Libya rebuild its registry and country :) Here is a release from Libyan Registrar Libyan Spider:


The .ly registry has informed us that all domains that have passed the redemption period and that have not been renewed by their .ly domain owners will become available to the public for registration.

As many of you already know, the redemption period was extended to allow for Libyan clients, who were disconnected from the internet during the war, enough time to renew their domains. The redemption period was extended to not only Libyan clients but also for international clients as well. Instead of the redemption period being 2 months, it was extended until the end of 2011.This extension was put into effect since June 2011.

Now that the end of 2011 is fast approaching, the .ly registry has let us know that beginning of 2012, all .ly domains that have not been renewed which have passed the redemption period will be available to the public for sale.

We strongly advise you to renew your domains, that have expired and passed the redemption period, before January 1, 2012 so as to not lose your domains to other buyers. We also strongly advise those who own 3 or less letter domains and that do not have a physical presence in Libya to renew your domains as once they become available you will not be able to buy them back if you do not have a physical presence (address) in Libya.

Libyan Spider will not be held responsible for any losses if a domain (3 letter or less) that has expired and passed redemption period becomes available and is no longer available for registration simply because the original owner does not have a physical presence in Libya. Libyan Spider will also not be held responsible for any losses should a .ly domain become available and registered to a new owner if the original owner failed to renew in time (including due to technical difficulties should the server fail, etc). This is why we are strongly advising you to renew your domains as soon as possible to avoid any problems or losses.

Please consider this notice as a final notice to renew your domains. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries or comments.

We appreciate your business and wish you all a happy new year. We look forward to serving you in 2012 and thank you for your patronage.
Sincerely,
Libyan Spider team
