How can I renew my expired domain?

Once the domain is expired it disappears from your list of domains. However, you can still reactivate most of the TLDs during 27 day grace period at a regular renewal price following the instructions below:

  • Sign in to your Namecheap account
  • Mouse over your username - it will be on the black bar located at the top of the page
  • Go to Manage Domains
  • Choose Reactivate Domains from the left side menu
  • Select the domain, click on Add To Cart button and proceed with checkout

After expiration, domain name can be reactivated for 1 year only.

If the domain cannot be found under Reactivate domains then it has most likely passed the expiration grace period and is now in the redemption period. More details on how a domain was placed in this status and recovery costs can be found in this knowledgebase article. Alternatively you may submit a ticket or contact us via live chat with us for further assistance.
