How to Renew Domain Names
There are two ways to renew domain name purchases at Porkbun: automatically and manually. If you have a credit card on file and auto-renew is turned on for a domain, domain renewal will happen automatically as the domain expiration date approaches. If you’d prefer to manually renew domain names or add multiple years of registration, however, you can do so from the Domain Management menu.
How Do I Renew a Domain at Porkbun?
We’ve made domain renewal at Porkbun super easy. Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way!
- Log in to your Porkbun account. You will arrive at the Domain Management screen. If you're already logged in, click on ACCOUNT in the top-right corner and select "Domain Management."
- Locate the domain you wish to renew. Click the "refresh" icon (the circle arrow) to the right of the domain name and under "Renew" then select the "Add Renewal to Cart" option. This is also where you can enable or disable automatic domain renewal.
- The Your Cart page will appear with a one year domain name renewal added to your cart. If you wish to add additional years of registration, click on "1 Year" and select up to nine additional years of registration.
The amount of registration for a domain may never exceed ten years. If your domain already has multiple years of registration, you will be prohibited from purchasing registration that extends beyond that 10-year limit.
- Once your cart is correct, click "Continue to Billing" to complete your domain renewal purchase. Once you have paid, the additional registration will immediately be visible in your account and in WHOIS.
