What's does this WHOIS information mean?

I see this information in whois godaddy:

 

Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited http://www.icann.org/epp#clientTransferProhibited
Domain Status: clientUpdateProhibited http://www.icann.org/epp#clientUpdateProhibited
Domain Status: clientRenewProhibited http://www.icann.org/epp#clientRenewProhibited
Domain Status: clientDeleteProhibited http://www.icann.org/epp#clientDeleteProhibited

 

But other whois sites showing this:

 

Domain Status: clientUpdateProhibited https://icann.org/epp#clientUpdateProhibited
Domain Status: clientDeleteProhibited https://icann.org/epp#clientDeleteProhibited
Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited https://icann.org/epp#clientTransferProhibited
Domain Status: autoRenewPeriod https://icann.org/epp#autoRenewPeriod

 

So can someone explain me what's that mean?

@MESWEB ,

 

Those are Domain Status Codes, also known as EPP.

 

Each code has its own meaning. To put it as simple as I can, the codes starting with “client” are set by the registrar, and the codes starting with “server” are set by the registry.

 

In this case, there’s “autoRenewPeriod” meaning that the domain has entered the auto renewal process. This happens when you turn on the auto renewal process of the domain, and automatically renews itself when the expiration approaches.

 

You can find the detailed description of those codes at ICANN’s website.

 

Hope this helps.

 So if it's "autoRenewPeriod" then why Registry Expiry Date: has been not changed?

autoRenewPeriod depends on the TLD. Sometimes “period” can be set a month before the expiry date. When is the expiration date of your domain? You can also contact your registrar and check it out with them, but in my experience, you are fine for now as long as “RedemptionPeriod” is not stated. In that case, the registry requires you to pay a fee in order to salvage the domain.
