Owning a domain name requires an annual fee (approximately $12 per year). To ensure you don’t lose your domain name permanently you need to renew your registration annually. Google Domains typically sends you an email notification at least one month before your domain name will expire. It is extremely important you renew registration or risk losing your domain name permanently.
To renew your domain, follow the steps below:
Navigate to Google Domains and make sure you sign in with the email address associated with the domain. Once signed in, click on your domain and navigate to “Registration settings”. Under the “Domain Registration” section, click “Add years” and choose how many years you would like to add. Click “Continue to payment” and follow the on-screen payment instructions.
Keep in mind the easiest way to renew is to turn on auto-renew. By enabling this option, you can handle this payment and future renewal payments automatically. Just be sure your card payment on file with your Google Domains account is valid.
Add, edit, or remove saved payment methods
You can view, add, or make changes to an existing payment method saved in your Google Account.
To add a payment method, sign in to Payment Methods. At the bottom, click “Add a payment method”. Select the payment method you want to add. Follow the instructions to finish adding your payment method. If you’re asked to verify your payment method, choose an option from the list, then enter the verification code. To change or remove a payment method, sign in to Payment Methods. Next to a payment method, click “Edit” or “Remove”.
