As the domain name owner, you are able to choose to renew the domain name if you like.
If you do want to keep the domain name, you will be emailed by our system and notified that a renewal is due. You will need to log into your account and click the Renew link. Once payment has been made for the renewal, the domain name will be renewed.
Renewals will usually process within 1 minute of payment.
If you do not renew the domain name, its status will go to PendingRelease.
PendingRelease means that the registry has determined that this domain name renewal has not been paid for and can be released so anyone can register the domain name.
PendingRelease lasts 90 days. This is calculated from the domain name expiry date.
