Expiration and renewal of purchased domains

Learn about the expiration and renewal process for your domains registered with us.

Overview

Domains are not permanent, and all domains will expire. Knowing the expiration date of your domain is particularly important if you want to renew and maintain your domain.

Domain expiration reminder notice

We send an email to the domain holder with instructions for renewing your registration. You must watch for and pay attention to these emails because we want to help you keep your domain name.

You receive expiration and renewal reminders:

  • 28 days before expiry or renewal
  • 21 days before expiry or renewal
  • 14 days before expiry or renewal
  • 7 days before expiry or renewal
  • 1 day before expiry or renewal

Renew your domain

When it comes to renewing your domain, we send you a reminder email to let you know your domain is expiring and it's time to renew. If you decide to renew your domain, select the renewal link in your expiration email and we’ll walk you through the process.

Length of time from purchase to expiry

It's essential to understand the length of time you hold your domain for. This might vary depending on the top-level domain.

It's useful to know how long your domain belongs to you before you need to renew it. This length of time varies according to the top-level domain.

Top-level domain refers to the last part of a domain name. For example, in www.dotdigital.com, the .com portion is the top-level domain.
