My domain is not showing up when I login
You may have created more than one username with us. Enter your domain name on the forgot password page to have your username and the password reset link sent to its account email address.

Is your domain registered at another registrar?
You can transfer your domain name to and renew it with us instead. Remember to do it early since domain transfer can take several days/weeks.

When does my domain expire and how much time do I have?

The expiration date of your domain name is listed in your control panel. We send renewal reminders 90, 60, 30, and 5 days before the expiration date to the email address on your account.

We also provide generous renewal grace periods for most extensions that give you several days after the expiration date to renew your domain name. We are one of the only registrars with a published domain expiration policy, which clearly lists these grace periods for each extension we offer.

If your domain name has passed the renewal grace period we provide, you may still be able to renew the domain via the registry's redemption grace period process, which is significantly more expensive. Read our full domain expiration policy for details on costs, applicability, and next steps.

How long should I renew my domain for?

Renewals add time to the current expiration dateYou do not lose any time by renewing early.

We recommend renewing your domain name for the longest term you can afford. Registering your domain names for longer terms helps protect you from price increases. There have also been suggestions in the search engine optimization community that longer registration terms can help your search engine rankings.

Some extensions offer only fixed terms and do not offer long term registrations. These are listed on our extension comparison page.

There are no discounts for multi-year renewals.

How long does it take to process my renewal?

Most domain renewals are automatically completed within seconds or minutes after placing your order.

If your domain name had expired before renewal, it will take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours for it to come back online while the domain is propagated across the internet and due to dns record caching by your ISP.

Some orders may take longer due to the following:

  • We run an extensive fraud detection system to fight fraudulent registrations, which may delay your order if it gets marked for review.
  • The domain registry may be down or there may be another problem. In this case, we'll review the order and help put it through.
