Order Suspension is a useful feature available to Resellers of ResellerClub. Typically, you may need to Suspend domain names in response to abuse complaints or when you haven't received payment towards domain name registration/renewal/transfer services, etc..


  • Suspending a domain name would result in disruption of all services associated with a domain name such web hosting, email hosting, etc..

  • ResellerClub does not support the Suspension / Unsuspension feature for domain names under the following TLDs (extensions), due to restrictions imposed by the Registry:

    • .CA

    • .DE

    • .EU

    • .NL

    • .UK

  • The Contact Details and Name Servers of such a domain name can not be modified while a domain name is Suspended.

  • A Transfer (Away) Request for this domain name to another Registrar will fail at the Registry itself and will not be allowed.

    However, when you Suspend a .AU domain name, it can still get Transferred since the .AU Registry prohibits blocking Transfers.

  • Domain name Renewal and Deletion would not be possible.

  • An Move/Push/Transfer of this domain name to another Customer Account would not be possible in this state.
  • A domain name Suspended by you, can only be Unsuspended by you or ResellerClub.

  • You will not be able to Unsuspend a domain name Suspended by ResellerClub.

  • A Customer can not Unsuspend a domain name under any circumstance.
