What is Auto-Renewal?

We offer to automatically renew your 1&1 registered domains to ensure full and uninterrupted continuation of your ownership rights for the domain.

If a domains registration were to be lapse at the end of a registration period, it would be returned to the registry and made available again to the general public. Once your domain is registered by someone else, it could be very costly to get it back. We protect your domain ownership until you tell us not to.

As part of the auto-renewal service, you receive an E-mail from us 30-50 days prior to the domain renewal date. You can check the renewal date on your domain names at WHOIS. Please make sure your E-mail address associated with your account is up to date and add billing@1and1.co.uk to your whitelist to ensure delivery.
