Hi there! In this video, you’ll learn about the renewal options for your GoDaddy domain and how to make sure your
domain name doesn’t expire. [typing] When you register your domain, you decide how long you want to maintain the registration anywhere from one to ten years. When that times is up, you can pay a renewal fee to retain your registration, or let your domain name expire. When a domain expires, it’s released to the public where someone else may potentially register it as theirs. That’s right… that clever, unique domain name you carefully selected and registered… that domain name that no one else in the world has… can be released for reuse by the public if you fail to renew your registration. The best way to ensure your domain name stays yours, is establishing auto-renewal. During the registration process, your domain is setup to automatically renew upon expiration unless you explicitly opt out. With auto renew enabled, upon expiration, Go Daddy can automatically renew your domain name, and charge the payment option you have on file with us. Thought it’s a good idea to always keep your account and billing information current, we know that credit cards do expire or you just might forget. If our initial billing attempt fails, GoDaddy will send multiple notifications before your domain expires. Keep in mind, if you don’t turn on auto renew, it’s your responsibility to manually renew your domain prior to expiration. Simply put… auto renew is the best way to ensure that you never risk losing your domain.
