Domain Name Status Codes
 
Whois records show who is responsible for a domain name and other key information. In addition to the owner and contacts for a domain, WhoIs records show the domain name's status. Each domain record has at least one status code but multiple statuses are permissible. Status codes are useful to determine why your domain isn't working, whether your domain is locked to prevent unauthorized domain transfers, and when a domain will be dropped. You can determine any domain's status by performing a whois lookup on the domain.Here is a list of status codes.

ACTIVE: The registry sets this status. The domain can be modified by the registrar. The domain can be renewed. The domain will be included in the zone if the domain has been delegated to at least one name server.

REGISTRY-LOCK: The registry sets this status. The domain can not be modified or deleted by the registrar. The registry must remove the REGISTRY-LOCK status for the registrar to modify the domain. The domain can be renewed. The domain will be included in the zone if the domain has been delegated to at least one name server.

REGISTRAR-LOCK: The sponsoring registrar sets this status. The domain can not be modified or deleted. The registrar must remove REGISTRAR-LOCK status to modify the domain. The domain can be renewed. The domain will be included in the zone.

REGISTRY-HOLD: The registry sets this status. The domain can not be modified or deleted by the registrar. The registry must remove the REGISTRY-HOLD status for the registrar to modify the domain. The domain can be renewed. The domain will not be included in the zone.

REGISTRAR-HOLD: The sponsoring registrar sets this status. The domain can not be modified or deleted. The registrar must remove REGISTRAR-HOLD status to modify the domain. The domain can be renewed. The domain will not be included in the zone.

REDEMPTIONPERIOD: The registry sets this status when a registrar requests that the domain name be deleted from the registry and the domain has been registered for more than 5 calendar days (if the delete request is received within 5 days of initial domain registration it will instead be deleted immediately). The domain will not be included in the zone. The domain can not be modified or purged; it can only be restored. Any other registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The domain will be held in this status for a maximum of 30 calendar days.

PENDINGRESTORE: The registry sets this status after a registrar requests restoration of a domain that is in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status. The domain will be included in the zone. Registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The domain will be held in this status while the registry waits for the registrar to provide required restoration documentation. If the registrar fails to provide documentation to the registry within 7 calendar days to confirm the restoration request, the domain will revert to REDEMPTIONPERIOD status. The domain status will be set to ACTIVE only if the registrar provides documentation to the registry within 7 calendar days to confirm the restoration request.

PENDINGDELETE: The registry sets this status after a domain has been set in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status and the domain has not been restored by the registrar. The domain will not be included in the zone. Once in this status all registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The domain will be purged from the registry database after being in this status for 5 calendar days.

Re: Domain Name Status Codes
 
These are the 6 domain name status codes used for COM and NET domains:

ACTIVE
As previously noted, the normal state for a domain name. Domains that are active can be used for Web sites, for email, or to register name servers.

REGISTRAR-HOLD
The domain has been placed on hold by the registrar and cannot be used.

REGISTRY-HOLD
The domain has been placed on hold by the registry and cannot be used.

REGISTRAR-LOCK
The registrar, often at the request of the domain registrant, has locked down the domain so that its settings cannot be modified.

REGISTRY-LOCK
The registry has locked down the domain so that its settings cannot be modified.

RedemptionPeriod
The domain has expired and the registry is waiting for 30 days as a precautionary measure before releasing it.

PendingRestore
A domain that had expired is now being restored to ACTIVE status.

PendingDelete
The domain expired 75 days ago and the registry is about to erase it. A domain remains in this status for five days before it is deleted.


ORG, BIZ, US, INFO, and NAME Domain Name Status Codes

These are the 15 domain name status codes used for ORG, BIZ, US, INFO, and NAME domains:

CLIENT_DELETE_PROHIBITED
The registrar has locked the domain so that it cannot be deleted.

SERVER_DELETE_PROHIBITED
The registry has locked the domain so that it cannot be deleted.

CLIENT_HOLD
The registrar has placed the domain on hold, and it cannot be used.

SERVER_HOLD
The registry has placed the domain on hold, and it cannot be used.

CLIENT_RENEW_PROHIBITED
The registrar has locked the domain so that it cannot be renewed.

SERVER_RENEW_PROHIBITED
The registry has locked the domain so that it cannot be renewed.

CLIENT_TRANSFER_PROHIBITED
The registrar has locked the domain so that it cannot be transferred to another registrar.

SERVER_TRANSFER_PROHIBITED
The registry has locked the domain so that it cannot be transferred to another registrar.

CLIENT_UPDATE_PROHIBITED
The registrar has locked the domain to prevent its settings from being changed.

SERVER_UPDATE_PROHIBITED
The registry has locked the domain to prevent its settings from being changed.

INACTIVE
The domain cannot be used because there is a problem with the name servers that were entered for it, or name servers have not been entered.

OK
The domain is active and can be used for Web sites, for email, or to register name servers.

PENDING_DELETE
The registration for the domain is about to be deleted by the registry, as when the domain expires.

PENDING_TRANSFER
The domain is in the process of being transferred from one registrar to another. It may not be modified during this period.

PENDING_VERIFICATION
The registry is in the process of creating the domain record.
