My first question is: Can you make a forum using the domain service?.

My next question is: Hello there,.

I had a HostGator renewal get by me, yeah me bad. Anyway, I don't want this HostGator but it's been automatically renewed by Go Daddy for two years. Is their a grace period where I can cancel this renewal?.

I'm checking with GD but thought I would check here. This isn't HostGator tasting since I've had this HostGator for two years. I just want it canceled now.

Your question was: Can you make a forum using the domain service?.

Once when I accidentally renewed (manually) some domains that I didn't want together with some that I did , I called my account exec and cancelled the ones I did not want.

But I don't remember if I had renewed them before their expiration date or after their expdate.

Or whether my request to cancel was before their expdate or after their expdate.

Just call GoDaddy and ask.


Though since Kath says there is no grace period for renewals , she probably has had the same issue or has read something about it..

That is not true. I have returned numerous accidentaly renewed domains. When my first batch of renewals came up, I was unprepared and my Godaddy account Rep fixed everything for me. They allow it, but prefer you not have to cancel any renewaled names, so I try very hard to catch everything in time now.

I think that the period in which you can return a name that was renewed in error is 30 days (don't quote me on that)...

You can cancel domains that have autorenewed at Godaddy. Just email or call them & you should be able to get a refund...

Comment #3

I've cancelled renewals also. I think it must be done within five days, but might be wrong...

I just heard back from GoDaddy. No problem. I just need to cancel the domain. Then request a refund. So you can cancel payment for HostGator that renewed and you change your mind or didn't want to renew it.

Go Daddy didn't specify a time frame. I'm within two days now. So I would think 5-30 days makes sense...

So for .com/.net etc there is a 5-day grace period for new registrations,.

For renewals I think it's a 45-day refund period,.

That's why registrars will often renew the expired names with the registry on behalf of clients, send them to auction and eventually drop them if there no bids so they get a refund from the registry..

Now not all registrars extend the facility to their customers...
