The deletion of a .ro domain is performed after 90 days from the expiry date of the domain if in this interval the owner does not renew his right of use by paying the annual maintenance service and, if applicable, the quarantine tax.
After the deletion, the respective domain will become available for registration according to the principle "first come, first served".
The deletion of .ro domain names is automatically processed according to the availability of the .ro Domain Registry servers - RoTLD.
Trends and general information
The .ro domain is the official top-level domain of Romania. These Romanian domains are very popular in the geographical area around Romania: German, Italian or Hungarian companies buy and register their own .ro domain to demonstrate a cultural, economic or ethnic connection with the region and people in Romania. The registered domains are managed by rotld.ro, a company based in Bucharest, Romania.
Since 1993, interested Internet users can buy and register their own .ro domains - the high age of the domain underlines an excellent reputation of the TLD which is rewarded in particular by major search engines such as Google, but also by many international visitors.
By the beginning of 2017, the .ro domain registry registered more than 900,000 domains. For companies it is also possible to buy and register a .com.ro domain, which underlines a commercial orientation - about 50,000 of these domains are currently registered.
There is also the domain .org.ro, which has been introduced for organizations or extensions such as .tm.ro, .nt.ro, .nom.ro, .info.ro, .rec.ro, .arts.ro, .firm.ro, .store.ro and .www.ro.
