Check your domain name expiry date

OK . . . so this one has come up again . . . CHECK your domain name expiry date.

We manage domain names for our clients.

But if your website provider does not do that for you, then you must check up on this yourself.

5910411419 b17af89773 m12 The problem will likely be that . . .

you registered the domain name with an email address that you no longer use.

So when they send out the renewal reminders, you do not get the reminder and the domain name expires.

And you end up with . . .

  • – no website

  • – no emails

Your domain name registration is the lifeline of your online presence.

It tells the internet where to find your web pages to display.

It also routes your emails to and from your email program.

When the domain name registration expires, none of this can happen.

No grace period

The renewal reminders are sent to you by email up to 90 days in advance of the expiry date.

So after that they give no grace period.  Everything disappears instantly.

Not sure how to check this?

Just use the “How Can I Help You?”  panel in the right hand sidebar of our website and we will help you.

You should check:

  1. the expiry date and note it in your diary

  2. the email address for notifications and change it if needed


What should you do now?

  1. If you are a Hotpink Websites – just RELAX !

  2. If not, then check up on your domain name NOW !

  3. Want some help or ideas? Just contact us at Hotpink Websites now.



I’ve got more important things to think about. I’ve got a yogurt to finish by today, the expiry date is today.
