Domain Renewal Description
Renewing your domain with DreamHost is really easy!

If you registered your domain with us, you'll see a button that says "Renew" to the right of your domain's expiration date on the first page. If you didn't register your domain with us, you should either transfer it to us or renew it with your original registrar.

Clicking that button will renew your domain immediately for the number of years you specify in the drop-down box next to it! You will by rebilled automatically for the renewal fees to your credit card on file. Note that domain registrations that are included free with your hosting plan cannot be renewed early by you. They'll be auto-renewed as long as you have the hosting plan with us, unless you specifically say you'd rather us not (by clicking the "no" link in the "Auto-Renew?" column for that domain)

If your domain isn't about to expire you can still set whether you'd like to be notified when it about to and whether you'd like us to automatically renew it for you from this page, via the "Auto-Renew?" links on the right.
