By placing an order with us, you agree that your names due for renewal will automatically be renewed by us, unless you advise us at least 46 days in advance of the expiration date that you do not wish to renew a name. We issue quarterly renewal reminder notices of all domains coming up for renewal in the following quarter, so you have approximately 90 days’ notice of any names coming up for renewal (e.g. renewal reminders for all names coming up for renewal in quarter 2 are sent out at the start of quarter 1).
