“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 at any time within the last 30 days before expiration. Enabling the auto-renew feature a few days or immediately before the expiration date is not enough to ensure the domain will be automatically renewed and you risk losing your domain. In most cases, the registrar will also require you to pay 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, therefore you also have the chance to disable auto-renewal should you not want to keep the domain.
