How to enable / disable auto-renew
 
Answer :

How auto-renew works


If you enable auto-renew for your domain name and services, your services will automatically renew for another year, 30 days prior to the expiry date. You will need to have a credit card stored on your account for the charges. Click here to learn how to add a credit card to your account.

Our system will notify the 1st Domains Account holder by email at least 15 days before any domain names and services auto-renew. Assuming that you have a valid credit card stored on your account, the services should be renewed 30 days before the expiration. If there are problems charging your credit card you will be notified by email, and we will attempt to charge the credit card several more times over the next 30 days.
