What is the Restore Lock Period (RLP)?

Once a registrar formally requests to restore a domain name, the registrar must submit a Restore Report to Public Interest Registry within five days to fully restore the domain name from RGP. This five day period is referred to as Restore Lock Period (RLP). This means that the registrar cannot use the domain name until a restore report has been submitted and accepted. During this period the following domain statuses will be applied:

PENDING DELETE RESTORE

UPDATE PROHIBITED

DELETE PROHIBITED

RENEW PROHIBITED

TRANSFER PROHIBITED
