How do I select the auto-renew payment method for an individual domain?

Setting up auto-renew for your domains can ensure you never lose a domain! When auto-renew is set up, our system will take care of the renewal for you 15 days before the domain's expiration date. However, for the auto-renewal to be successful, you must have an up-to-date payment method selected.

To select a payment method for an individual domain, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Click "My Domains", then "Manage Domains" from the left-side menu bar.
  3. Click on the domain you wish to edit.
  4. In the "Renew Option" row, click the arrow icon.
  5. Select "auto-renew"from the drop-down menu on the new page and choose your currency and payment method.
  6. Click "Save Settings" when you are finished.

You can also set a payment method for a group of domains.


  • At the moment, there are 4 payment types used for auto-renewals. You can choose account credit, credit card, checking account, or your linked PayPal account (assuming you already added a credit card, checking account, or linked PayPal account).
  • You will need to make sure your credit card is up-to-date or that you have enough account credit to cover future auto-renewal orders.
  • If we cannot process your payment, then your domain will not be renewed and you will receive an email from us about it.
  • The payment method you choose for auto-renewals is no longer the same payment method used for auto-paying expired domain auction orders.
