Therefore, partners are advised to refer the domain expiration date from the partner central.

The domain will remain on these servers until the domain being forward to somewhere else. If someone tries to access the domain, an “Under Construction” page will appear on the screen. Once partners have found a host for the website, the hosting company will be able to transfer the domain to their server.
