I'm fairly new to dealing with domain names and I have a question that's been puzzling me. Upon checking the WHOIS information for my domain, I came across two distinct expiration dates:

Registry Expiry Date: 2023-06-25
Registrar Registration Expiration Date: 2023-10-31

I'm finding it hard to determine when my domain will actually expire and subsequently go offline. Is it on the earlier date of 2023-06-25, or will it be later on 2023-10-31? My concern has grown because the first date is just around the corner, and, unfortunately, I won't be able to reach out to my hosting provider over the weekend. I only became aware of this today, so I realize I'm cutting it very close, but I'd really appreciate some clarity on this matter.

  • What is the TLD of this domain? Are you seeing these two dates in the same whois lookup? I would expect either one or the other (depending on the WHOIS server), and they should be the "same" in my experience? Since the first date has now past what have you found out?

Are you looking in https://lookup.icann.org/en/lookup, the official ICANN lookup site?

If I look there it only has the Registry expiry date which is what I would trust.
