- Are there limits to email forwarding?
Yes, there are a couple of different limits to our email forwarding: You can specify up to 10 domain emails to be forwarded. We will forward up to 500 emails per day for your domain name. Any emails above that limit will not be accepted by our email forwarding server. The email will either bounce or be delayed until you are under your 500 email limit again. You cannot respond using your domain email address as this is only a forwarding service, meaning you can only receive emails to your domain email address. You can only use our email forwarding if you are using our name servers. If you are using someone else's name servers, you will need to set up your email forwarding settings on those name servers.

Ensuring you do not lose your domains is important. Here are a couple of suggestions to help you keep your domains from expiring: Keep your email address up to date: This is where we will send those domain expiration notices as well as other important account information. Domain expiration notices are sent out starting 60 days before the expiration date. You can also set a renewal email, so you can receive notices at two emails to make sure you don't miss them! Use our domain auto-renewal service: Once you set up auto-renew for your domain, our system will automatically renew the domain for you 15 days before the expiration date. Just make sure you have an up-to-date payment method selected. Register your domain for up to 10 years: Many of our top-level domains (TLDs) allow you to register your domain name for up to 10 years. You can take advantage of this to ensure that your domain will not expire any time soon. Just remember to renew at the end of 10 years (or well before)! Find out how many years you can register your domain. Domain already expired? Don't worry you may have a renewal grace period that will allow you to keep your domain.
