Your domain name is your most valuable online asset. As demand for domains continues to increase, holding on to your domain is critical. Without it, you lose your website and, once it’s gone, it’s very hard to get it back. This is a very high price to pay in comparison to the few quick clicks it takes to renew.
The fact is, you never truly own your domain outright – you rent it. The domain is registered to you for a specified time and, when that time is up, it’s time to renew. Most domains are costed per year but when you make a purchase it will require you to register for 2 years by default; however, in some cases you can opt to increase or decrease the duration depending on your needs and the pricing you are comfortable with.
With a few clicks you can renew your domains and prevent them from lapsing or falling into someone else's hands. To eliminate the risk altogether, set up auto-renewal to ensure you don’t accidentally lose your online real estate.
In your account you can set the domain name to auto-renew. This will automatically debit your account.
If your account is not set to auto-renew you will receive notifications of pending domain name expiry sent to your nominated email address.
Yes you can. But first you will have to transfer that domain name from your current registrar to the new registrar.
This depends on the length you initially registered your domain name for. If you have registered the domain name for 2 years, then it will be every 2 years. However, you can change the registration to 1 year or 5 years after your initial purchase when it comes to re-registering.
Yes you can. This is done in your account under domains.
