.mx domain life cycle

Dominio disponible<br />

Available domain

In this first phase the domain is free and can be registered. Any user can request the registration of a domain available through an accredited Registrar Agent and become its owner.


The domain name is registered and can be active from 1 to 10 years. This is the period of the first registration, but if the holder decides to renew it, he can keep the domain active for as long as he wishes.
Fecha de vencimiento<br />

Due date

When the expiration date of the domain arrives, if it is not renewed, the domain expires. At that time, all services related to the domain become inactive: the website, email accounts, etc.
Período de gracia<br />

Grace period

If the domain is not renewed before the expiration date, it enters a grace period that lasts between 30 and 45 days. During this period, the domain remains inactive, but it can be recovered at the normal renewal price.
Período de redención<br />

Redemption Period

If the domain is not renewed during the grace period, it goes into a redemption status for 30 days. A domain in redemption can be recovered and renewed, but at a higher price than the normal renewal fee.
Período de eliminación<br />


If the domain is not renewed during the grace or redemption period, at the end of the period it remains a few days in the process of deletion. When it is deregistered, it becomes available again for registration by any user.

Frequently asked questions about .mx domains

Para qué se utilizan

What are .mx domains used for?

The .mx domain extension was opened to the public in 2009 as a territorial extension or ccTLD (Country Code Top Level Domain) for Mexico. The body in charge of managing and regulating this extension is Registry .mx. This extension also has the third level extension .com.mx. It is advisable to register your domain with this extension if your website is focused on the Mexican territory.

DNS update in .mx domains

The DNS of a .mx domain can be modified at any time at the provider where the domain is managed. At Webempresa we provide you with a control panel where you can check the DNS assigned to the domain and also modify them. The DNS change takes effect immediately on the domain, but must propagate throughout the network. This propagation can take 6-12 hours to complete, typically.

Cambio de datos Whois en dominios

Change of Whois data in .mx domains

The whois data of all the domain contacts (owner, administrative, technical, billing) can be changed at any time at the provider where the domain is managed. Keep in mind that the owner contact is the legal owner of the domain. If you modify these data, a change of ownership is made and the domain will become the property of the new person or entity that appears in that contact.
Is it advisable to use .mx domains with ñ?
.mx domains do not admit special characters such as ñ.
Are there .mx domains that are reserved or that cannot be registered?
There is no specific list of reserved domains that you cannot register. But we do recommend that before buying a domain in your name, check if the brand is already registered or there is a company related to the domain (such as other extensions under the same name).
Can I assign my company data in Whois contacts to the .mxdomain?
Yes, you can assign your company data to all the contacts of the .mx domains.
