If you have already renewed your domain name and the
whois information shows that the domain name has already been
renewed and you receive another renewal notice for the same domain
name, take a closer look at the notice. Most likely the notice
is to renew other services ( Email or URL Forwarding, Secure Whois,
etc.) not the domain name registration.
Domain name renewal is the
assurance to continue your presence on the Internet. Many
domain name owners lost their domain names because they neglected to
renew their domain name on time. We do not want this event to
ever happen to any of our customers. We have created the
auto-renewal feature to assure that your domain name would be
renewed prior to its expiration. Unfortunately though, you
must do your part to watch for two very important things.
1. Your email address must be
correct in order for us to be in touch with you in the event that
your bank does not approve the charges to renew the domain name.
2. Also make sure that the
credit card on file is up to date (most importantly check to see if
the expiration date needs to be updated, and make sure the card on
file is valid), since we cannot charge an expired credit card.
If the domain name is not renewed on time, and you let it expire it
will be held for a 30-day's redemption period. During this
time the domain name will be removed from the zone files (the list
of domains currently in the global DNS.) All services
associated with the domain name will stop working. This
includes your website, email forwarding and URL Forwarding.
While you may retrieve the domain name from deletion during the
redemption period, you must pay a $100 fee to do so. Once the
redemption period has passed, the domain name will be released for
anyone to register.
Be aware that ICANN and VeriSign
have signed an agreement that allows VeriSign to impose higher fees
on all registrars. To secure any future price hike in the
future, we advise you to renew your domain name for the maximum
number of years you can afford to renew. As you know, ICANN
has imposed a $.25 fee on all domains registered, and we did not
pass this increase to any of our customers like the rest of the
websites send massive emailings to domain name owners. They
send deceptive emails that look like official requests to renew
domain names and the end result is that you will be tricked into
paying three times the amount we charge for renewal, and they may
also trick you into transferring your domain name to them, making it
very difficult to retrieve your domain back.
sends renewal notices through the Post Office mail,
and if you receive postal mail from anybody to renew your domain
name, consider it to be a fraudulent request to get your money.
(Renew your domains up to ten years)
To renew a domain, please put a check mark next to the domain(s) you
wish to renew, then press the Continue button. If you have domains
that have expired and are in the redemption status, and you would
like to restore them, you can do so in this section.
(Make sure your domains are renewed on time)
Check domains you want to be auto
Uncheck the ones you do not wish to auto renew.
PLEASE NOTE: If your domain will expire within 30 days you need to
renew it first before setting the Auto Renew option. These domains
will be listed with a "*" before the domain name.
(Disable renewal emails)
Check domains you don't want renewal emails for. Uncheck the ones
you want to receive the renewal notices for. Please remember: if the
auto renewal option is not set for these domains they will expire
without any notification.
