Toggle Domain Auto Renewal

Learn how to set which domains you would like to automatically renew and which you would like to expire naturally at the end of their registration term.

The ability to toggle whether a domain should automatically renew is only available for domains registered to 1&1.

The auto-renew feature is enabled or turned on by default to ensure that your domain does not unintentionally expire, which can leave your website inaccessible and hurt the reputation of your business. You can disable domain autorenewal by following the steps below.

Step 1
Log in to your 1&1 Control Panel and select the relevant package.
Step 2
Click the Domains link under My Products section in the left side menu.
