Network solutions error affecting domain names

This afternoon, I went to my Network Solutions account to unblock a domain name and request an authorization code. There I noticed that had the NS1.PENDINGRENEWALDELETION.COM NS2.PENDINGRENEWALDELETION.COM name servers that the company uses when a domain name expires. I won in August at NameJet.

I thought maybe this was my problem and hadn’t updated the nameservers. It’s rare, but sometimes this sort of thing happens if I was busy when the name was assigned to my account. I went to change the nameservers, and got this error message when I tried to change the nameservers: “The selected domain name has expired and must be renewed before you can make this change.

As you can see from the current Whois records, does not expire until June 2021. Also, looking at the earlier Whois records on DomainTools, I can see that the Whois records were, so this is no It’s not entirely clear when the name servers have changed. If this was a website used for commercial purposes, it would be frustrating for Network Solutions to have some kind of technical error indicating that a domain name has expired which changed its nameservers while This is not the case.

Unfortunately, this does not appear to be a one-off isolated case. Another domain name in my account,, also won on NameJet in August, also shows the same error message.

I’m not sure if this issue is limited to my account or if it happens to others, but you should check your Network Solutions nameservers to be sure.

These are not the only domain names that have errors in my account. I recently won at NameJet, and the main account page says the nameservers point to “PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION”, however, the domain name resolves correctly to a page.

While these two issues are probably resolved quickly, I find it disheartening and annoying that a company like Network Solutions has issues like this. If I hadn’t noticed it because I’m not a regular customer, my domain names could have been in this weird and incorrect expired status on the registry.
