Domain Name Renewal
What is a domain name renewal?
When you register a domain name, you gain exclusive rights to that domain name for a period of time but not forever. It’s more like a lease than a purchase. In effect, renewing extends your lease on the domain name.
How do I renew a domain name?
Log in and click “My Account”. Click “Registered Domains”. Click the domain name you want to renew. Click “renew”. Use the drop-down menu to select the number of years you want to renew, and click “Checkout Now”. Agree to the terms and conditions and click “Purchase Items”.
When can I renew a domain name?
You can renew a domain name almost any time, and you can extend the expiration date up to 10 years from today.
Avoid letting your domain expire! The registry allows a short period of time to renew at your normal registration price, but then they raise the price considerably, and if you don’t pay the grace period redemption price they delete the name. Once the name enters the deletion queue, we lose the ability to retrieve it for you. You have to compete for it on its deletion date, and if you’re able to regain it, it may be expensive. We strongly recommend renewing your domains well in advance of their expiration dates to avoid the frustration and expense of this process.
