Renewing a Domain Name

When you register a domain name, it is registered to you for a certain number of years i.e., until its Registration term expires. If you plan to continue using it beyond its Expiry Date, then you need to renew it.

You can renew your domain name from your Control Panel by following the below mentioned process:

  1. Login to your Control Panel. 1

  2. Search for the domain name and proceed to the Order Information view. 2

  3. Click the Renew button.

    For Resellers: If the domain name is Suspended by either you or Genabit Consulting, it needs to be first Unsuspended, before you can proceed.

  4. From the Renew for drop-down box, select the numbers of years for which you wish to renew this domain name. You may renew the Privacy Protection service along with the domain name, by selecting the Include Privacy checkbox.

  5. Click the Renew Domain Name button.

  6. Proceed to Pay for the Renewal.

The Renewal would be affected immediately.
