How Can I Tell If My Domain Is Set To Automatically Renew

When looking at the list of domains in domain central, the Renew column shows if the domain is set to automatically renew. One of three statuses will be shown:

  • Auto: Domain is signed up for automatic renewal.
  • Manual: Domain is not signed up for automatic renewal. You must renew the domain manually.
  • Remove: The domain is not registered through and cannot be renewed. The domain will need to be transferred in order to handle its renewal. Another possibility is that the domain is registered through but has been expired for more than 30 days and can no longer be renewed through Domain Central (please contact us to renew the domain).
