Protecting your domain from expiration
If you plan on keeping your domain name for the upcoming year we recommend you head over to the company you bought the domain from and enable automatic renewals, This will ensure that your domain doesn’t expire. If you were to miss the renewal of your domain it is usually held by the company for a while which it can be bought back at a bigger cost before it becomes available for other customers to buy.
Domain renewal scams
If you don’t have Who.is Protection people can type in your domain name and receive information you entered when buying the name such as address. These can then be used to send emails and postal mail telling the person their renewal is up and need to pay a fee.
