Requires (mandatory)

domain domain name to renew

the wanted expiration year (e.g. '2014')


Accepts (optional)

privacy          basic|pro|none|keep - adds whois privacy subscription to domain renewal

none: explicitly do a renew without privacy services, even if currently privacy is enabled

keep: renew with the same level of privacy service which is currently active for the domain

see also Whois Privacy Services


maximum price user is willing to pay for a domain registration, renewal or transfer. If provided, it must be a number (fractions allowed) above 0.

If not provided and domain has non-standard pricing, or if max-price is lower than actual domain price at the moment of registration, the request will fail.
If max-price is higher than the actual domain price, then only the actual price will be deducted



With this request you can renew the domain. Please be aware that all renewals are not refundable.


"expyear" is a safety option which can be used instead of "period" to renew domain till specified year (not longer). If you use "period", and by mistake send the request more than once, domain will be renewed again, while with "expyear", it will not be renewed if it's expiration year is greater or equals to specified.

Only one of "period" or "expyear" may be used, but not both.


Please note:

  • registration period is in months, not years! In most cases, this number is a multiple of 12.
  • to prevent from unintended/errorneous multiple renewals, a specific domain name can only be renewed once per 6 hours. This means, if you want to renew a domain for 2 years, you should use a period of "24" - in case you want to renew using two requests with a period of "12", the 2nd request must not be sent before 6 hours after the 1st one.
