3.11: ErkmenHost may make changes to the features and prices of the products and services it provides. Services such as domain registration, renewal, and transfer, server licenses (cPanel, DirectAdmin, LiteSpeed, CloudLinux, etc.), and SSL certificates are directly affected by exchange rates.

To reclaim the domain name after this period, the former customer must pay a redemption fee, which varies depending on the value of the domain extension, typically around 95 USD plus 18% VAT.
