How can I check if a domain name is on auto-renewal?

Please first login at with your ID and password. Click on "Manage Domains"/"Auto-Renewal", you may see on this page all the domains eligible for Auto-Renewal. To perform a query of the Auto-renewal status of specific domain(s), you may:

1.      Choose the specific domain extension.

2.      Input the initial letter(s) of the domain(s).

3.      Choose current domain Auto-Renewal status.

4.      Input specific domain name(s).

5.      Combine the above-mentioned parameter.

How do I know the auto-renewal is successful on the domain name?

A domain's expiration date will be automatically extended for one year upon successful Auto-Renewal, you may check for the updated expiration date from the relevant domain list and the domain Auto-Renewal list. Please note that the auto-renewal execution date will be the day of expiration date.

Is Auto-Renewal option applicable to all domain extensions?

Currently, Auto-Renewal option is applicable to .COM/.NET/.ORG/IDN/.CN/.US/.BIZ/.INFO/.EU domains.

What will happen if my account balance is insufficient even I enable auto-renewal for domain name.

For instance, if the expiration date of is 2004-5-1, and you've enabled Auto-Renewal option for the domain, however, there is only $1 in your account on 2004-5-1, then, Auto-Renewal for will fail on that day and a notification email asking you to replenish your account will be sent over to you. From 2004-5-1 to 2004-5-9, our system will automatically check your account every day and Auto-Renew for one year if there is sufficient fund in your account; if there is still insufficient fund in your account by 2004-5-9, then from 2004-5-10, our system will cease to check the balance in your account and will not Auto-Renew your domain. However, you will still be able to renew the domain manually through normal procedures.

Here is a reminder that if a domain with its Auto-Renewal option enabled isn't successfully Auto-Renewed within 10 calendar days after its expiration date, then the domain will drop into Hold status. The domain won't function properly in the Hold status, meanwhile, the enabled Auto-Renewal option for the domain will be disabled; if you manually renew your domain more than 10 calendar days after its expiration date and you would still like your domain to be Auto-Renewed when its new expiration date comes, then you would need to re-enable the Auto-Renewal option for your domain.

If I enable the Auto-Renewal option for a domain with its expiration date on 2004-9-1, and I manually renew the domain for one year in May 2004, will OnlineNIC system still Auto-Renew the domain on 2004-9-1 and charge my account accordingly?

If you manually renew the domain in May and thus extended the domain's expiration date to 2005-9-1, our system then won't Auto-Renew the domain on 2004-9-1 and won't charge your account, as our Auto-Renewal system will judge on the up-to-date domain expiration date.

As one of many OnlineNIC value-added FREE services, the Auto-Renewal option aims at providing convenience for you to better protect your domains. The Auto-Renewal fee is just the same as the normal renewal fee. Definitely NO hidden charge.

If a domain's Auto-Renewal option is enabled, then under what kind of circumstances might the Auto-Renewal of the domain fail?

A domain with its Auto-Renewal option enabled might fail to be Auto-Renewed under the following circumstances:

1.      There is insufficient fund for the Auto-Renewal fee in the relevant account.

2.      The connection between OnlineNIC system and the Registry fails due to network problems.

3.      Technical problems with the Registry on a certain day and thus causing the failure of Auto-Renewals on that day.

10 calendar days from a domain's expiration date, our system will automatically check and try to Auto-Renew the domain every day until it is successfully Auto-Renewed even though the Auto-Renewal might fail several times due to the above-mentioned reasons. But after 10 calendar days, you will need to renew the domain manually if the domain is still not successfully Auto-Renewed.
