“Auto-Renew” Only Domains
Certain domain names are auto-renew only and cannot be renewed manually. For these domains, it’s important to have the auto-renewal feature turned on at least 1 month prior to the expiration date.
Auto-renewals are automatically processed by the registrar within the last 30 days before expiration. Enabling the auto-renew feature on a domain a few days or immediately before the expiration date will not ensure automatic renewal, and you risk losing your domain. In most cases, the registrar will also charge an extra fee to recover the domain from deletion.
The best solution is to always have auto-renewal enabled. We notify you 2 months before a domain is auto-renewed, so you can disable auto-renewal if you don’t want to keep the domain.
For more information, visit the TLD-specific articles. If a domain requires auto-renewal, we will alert you with a message on your DNSimple account page in the renewal section of the domain.
