Set your domain to auto-renew

To save you having to worry about renewing your domain every year, I recommend you set up auto-renewal. The other advantage of doing this is you can safely disregard any spam emails that come your way telling you your domain is due to expire. To do this, click on the Renewals & Billing panel.

Renewals and Billings

From here, you can select Auto-Renew On for any domain you’ve bought.

Offers and upgrades you can ignore

Also on the Renewals & Billing screen, you may also see one or two items GoDaddy offers on free trial, such as their website builder and online bookkeeping. You don’t need any of these.
