Renew Domain Names
It is important to be aware that when you register a domain name you do not "own" that domain name. Instead, the domain name is registered to you for a period of time, after which you will have the opportunity to renew it.
Domain names are subject to renewal to ensure that those that are no longer wanted are removed from the register database and become available for others to use.
Only domain names that are registered with us currently can be renewed with us. You will be contacted in advance of the renewal date to check whether you wish to renew your domain name or not.
If a renewal request is not received within 30 days of expiry, the domain name will be suspended. We will send you two further renewal reminders. Seven days before suspension we will send you a suspension warning. Then 14 days after expiry, when the domain name is suspended we will send you a suspension notice. Throughout this period it is still possible to renew your domain name.
When a domain name is suspended all services that use the domain name will stop working. This means that your website at that domain name will not work and any email using the domain name will not be delivered.
After a 44 day suspension period the domain name will be cancelled and will then be immediately available for re-registration by someone else.
Please follow the steps below to renew your domain name:
If you registered your domain name with us, we will automatically renew your domain name, please make sure your domain name invoice has been paid BEFORE the due date and that your credit card details are up to date. Log into your online billing account manager and request a domain name renewal.
Note: .ie domain names can be renewed between 90 days before its expiry date and 14 days after its expiry date. All other domain names can be renewed at any time.
