Auto Renew Function at Moniker


I just noticed something within my domain account at Moniker that I want to share with you.   On domain names that I transferred into Moniker from other domain registrars, the auto-renew function was set to “off.”   Since most domain names I transfer in to Moniker are aftermarket acquisitions, these are important names that shouldn’t be dropped by me and should be set to auto-renew prior to expiration.

Although I monitor the weekly “expiring domains” email that Moniker sends, I think it’s better to be proactive about domain renewal status than to be reactive. Keep your better domain names on auto-renew to avoid any oversights. My other advice is to renew your key domain names for multiple years in the event of a credit card expiration or some other system error.

It’s better to be overly cautious than to make a regretful mistake.

    What registrars Elliot? Are they mainly “SnapNames” type registrars? I have transferred in many domains from Godaddy and NSI etc and have not seen this problem. I just checked my domains to be sure but all were marked ON and I didn’t have to adjust any when the transfer finished.

    I think the last few were Network Solutions,, and DomainDiscover off the top of my head. I am not sure about the ones from Snapnames.

    Interesting. I will be sure to keep an eye on it but I haven’t had any issues like that. Glad you caught it before hand though!

    You can change your default settings at Moniker so that all new regs and transfers in are set to autorenew.
