Set up auto renew for your domain

Your domain expires unless you renew it. To avoid this, set your domain to renew automatically each year.
If your domain expires, you typically have 30 days to restore it without any additional steps. However, after that renewal grace period, you must pay an additional restoration fee and take additional steps to restore your domain. Learn more about pricing and supported domain endings.
