The order of the domain renewal is generated automatically (renewal period – one year) 30 days before the domain’s expiration.
The IPC does not apply an automatic renewal; however, it notifies the domain holder about the necessity to decide if the domain holder wants to extend the domain’s validity term.
The domain holder has to pay for the domain renewal service until the end of the current term.
If the domain holder fails to pay on time, the domain is deleted at the end of the current term.
Usually, a domain is renewed for one year; however, different top-level domain registries allow the domain renewal for various periods.
The allowed duration of renewals in individual top-level domains: .lt – minimum of one term, maximum of five accumulated terms (the ones that have not begun); .eu, .com, .info, .org and .net – minimum of one term, maximum of 9 accumulated terms (the ones that have not begun).
The domain holder has to order a domain renewal for a longer preferred period or at another preferred time on his/her account. If the domain, which renewal order has been generated automatically, is renewed for a longer period, the generated order has to be cancelled and a new order for a preferred renewal period has to be submitted.
