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. To set your domain to auto-renew, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down. Check the box next to the domain name(s) you wish to auto-renew. Select "Renew Options" from the "Action" drop-down menu. On the new page, set the drop-down menu to "auto-renew" and choose or enter your desired payment method. Press the "Save Settings" button to save your settings. If our auto-renewal attempt is not successful, we will email you. Then, we will make another attempt every day until the domain expires. This allows you to simply update your payment method and then (as long as your domain has not already expired) our system can complete the domain's auto-renewal. When we are able to successfully create the auto-renewal order, you will receive an email confirmation. You can also use these steps to turn auto-renew off on your domains. By default, all domains are set to have auto-renew off. NOTE: Setting an expired domain to auto-renew will also initiate a renewal attempt.

SMS Authenticator, along with your "birthday" and Google Authenticator is a great way to add extra security to your account. This is why we recommend adding it as a part of your account security. You will be required to enter your SMS Authentication code at the following places: Login: If you are not also using Google Authenticator, you will be asked to enter an SMS code at login after your username and password. (However, if you are using Google Authenticator and SMS Authenticator, you will only be asked to enter your Google Authenticator token code at login.) Unlocking Your Account: You are also required to enter your SMS code when you unlock your account. This will be the true even if you also use Google Authenticator because in that case, you will be asked to enter both codes along with your birthday. Unlocking your account is required for certain account functions such as editing your account info and unlocking your domains. Lost your cellphone? Forgot your birthday?

Reasons for unlocking your account include editing your account info and unlocking your domains. In addition to your "birthday," we also have options to add SMS Authentication and/or Google Authenticator, which we recommend doing to increase your account and domain security. Please note that if you forget your "birthday," you may be required to submit identification.
