- How do I set my domains to auto-renew?
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 "Bulk 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.
- How do I change my Dynadot account email address?
Since we send you emails about renewing your domains, we recommend making sure you use an accessible email address as your account email. We also do not recommend using one attached to a domain within your account because you won't be able to access that email if your domain expires. To change your account email, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Info" from the left-side menu bar and click "Account Info" in the drop-down. You will see your current email address listed under the "Account Info" section. Click on "Edit Info". You will be prompted to unlock your account. Verify your account "birthday" and any other 2 step verification codes authorized for your account, then click on the "Unlock Account" button. You can now edit your email address as well as add an additional renewal email address to receive domain renewal notices. Once you have updated your email address as well as any other account information, enter your account password in the "Confirm Password" box. Click on the "Save" button to save your changes. Please note that updating your account information will not affect your Whois contact record(s). See more info about the difference between account info and contact records.
