Renewing Domains, Expiration & Redemption

How to Renew a Domain

Domain names are registered on an annual basis and must be renewed when they expire. To renew a domain name, you will need to contact the company which you registered your domain with.

Domain Expiration & Redemption

It is important to keep track of when your domain expires since people can't find your website without it. Not renewing your domain name in time can cause your website to be down, costing you money, and it is even possible to lose your domain name if you wait too long.

We recommend creating reminders in your calendar for renewing your domain name, just to be safe.
