What happens if I stop paying for my DNSimple subscription?

After a certain period of time, an account is cancelled after payment cannot be collected. What happens in this case depends on the current configuration of your delegation.

If you are pointing to DNSimple’s nameservers and your account closes, your domain will no longer resolve, and will become unreachable (You would get a ‘SERVFAIL’ or ‘NXDOMAIN’ DNS error code as a response in this case).

If you are not pointing to DNSimple’s nameservers and your account closes, your domain will resolve as long as the nameservers you are pointing to are valid.

If you registered your domain with DNSimple and your account closes, the same logic from above applies. However, you will still be able to manage your domain through our interface (you will still be able to do things such as update WHOIS contact information, alter domain delegation, etc).

If the domain is registered and you close your account, your domain will not renew automatically even if it was set to do so.
