How can I renew my expired domain?

Once the domain expires, it enters Grace status. For most TLDs, you have approximately 27 days to reactivate at the regular renewal price after your domain enters Grace status. Follow these instructions to reactivate a domain during the Grace period:

1. Sign in to your Namecheap account and select Expiring Soon from the left side menu.

2. Find the domain you'd like to renew, click the caret to expand the list of services, and add it to your shopping cart. Then click the View Cart button:

3. Click the Confirm Order button and proceed with checkout:

After expiration, a domain name may be reactivated for one year only. You will be able to renew it for more years in 24 hours.

Once your domain is reactivated, please allow 24-48 hours for the changes to take effect globally and for the website to come back online.

If you don't find your domain in the Expiring Soon section, that means it has passed the Grace period and is now in the fully expired/redemption state. For details regarding reactivation of a domain name in this state, review this article.

That's it!
