This content only applies to Gator Website Builder hosting plans which are accessible by going to app.gator.com.

To ensure uninterrupted service, all Gator accounts renew either bi-annually, annually, or monthly to the day, automatically, depending on your initial plan selection. To clarify or review these selections, be sure to review the invoice attached to your confirmation email for full payment details. All services should be paid before their respective expiration dates to avoid service interruption. Renewal status on products, including domains in your account, is set to auto-renew upon initial purchase for simplicity since we do not manage your account on your behalf.

If, for some reason, your account does not automatically renew, for example, if you have chosen to set your hosting account to Do Not Renew* or if your payment details are not up-to-date, you will need to make sure you renew your services before they expire. This article will cover billing times frames, automatic renewal, and the respective rates.

* Gator occasionally offers promotions and special offers to customers during their initial term. These special offers were promotional prices available to new customers and valid for the initial term only. The offers will automatically renew at regular rates.

** The price per month shown above is a monthly cost breakdown of the plan's regular pricing. Upon sign-up, you will be billed for the plan's full-term selection upfront. (Example: Selecting a 12-month plan will invoice the total amount for the year.)

*** NOTE: Prices shown in USD. Prices for other supported currencies use the same numeral value and are not based on currency conversion​ (i.e., $20 equals €20). Please check out our Pricing page for more information regarding plans and pricing.


Pro Tip: Your Gator account will automatically be billed 15 days before the renewal date, per the Terms of Service, using the payment method that we have on file unless you cancel ahead of time.
