Domain name renewal forms an important part of owning a domain name successfully & not loosing it to your competitors!
Yes, when you register a domain name, it is registered for a certain period of time such as a few months or years. In order to continue using a registered domain name beyond its expiration date, you would need to renew it from time to time.
For domain name renewal, you should contact your domain name registrar before the expiry date of your domain name.
When you first register your domain name, you are given a chance of choosing the certain duration for that specific domain. After this, you must keep track of the domain expiry date and if you want to renew your domain name, you should do so before the expiry date.
Your domain name registrar could also send domain name renewal notifications through emails to your registered email address generally based on the following schedules-
- First domain name renewal notification will be sent around one month before the domain expiration date.
- Second domain renewal notification will be sent roughly five days before the domain expiry date.
- Third domain renewal notification will be sent instantly after the domain expiry date.
This makes you easier to renew your domain name on time.
When you register your domain name, make sure to update the WHOIS data, which contains your email address. Later, when the time comes for domain renewal, you would get email reminders.
If you don’t want to depend on emails, you could perform a WHOIS search for your domain name, and could check its expiration date.
If you are supposed to use your domain for a long time, you must consider registering as well as renewing it for more than a year.
You can even decide to transfer your domain name to another domain name registrar when it is time to renew a domain name registration as he/she might offer better terms for your domain renewal.
