At a glance

  • Our renewals procedure requires you to decide before expiry which domain names you want to renew on behalf of your customers
  • You can renew a domain name on your tag on behalf of the registrant at any time
  • Nominet members can renew customer domain names for between one and ten years
  • Non-member registrars can renew domain names for two-year periods only

The renewals procedure requires registrars to decide before expiry which domain names they want to renew on behalf of their customers.  Renewing a domain name extends the expiry date for between one and ten years depending on the length of renewal that has been requested.  Registrars can renew a domain name on their tag on behalf of the registrant at any time by submitting a renewal request through our registrar systems.  

Any renewals submitted after registration and before billing will change the registration to the total term (initial registration period + renewal period)

If you would like further information on the renewals system, full details of the renewals procedure are available, as well as of our email renewal reminder process.
