Description

Deletes the given domain at the registry. Domain deletion requests are carried out with a time delay and therefore you will always receive "command completed; action pending", as well as the deletion date in the domain extensions as a response.

Additional Information

Note

If a domain deletion is to take place shortly before the domain expiration date (2 days), it will be deleted on the domain expire date instead.
