Domain registration and renewal are billed annually. When you register a domain with iwantmyname, you are purchasing it for a full billing cycle, which is typically a year.
If you receive a monthly bill it is likely for a hosting service, which is a separate provider from us.
You are not billed for the domain renewal until the end of the registration period, and then the renewal for which you are billed covers another year.
Can I change my billing date or amount?
Because renewal billing is tied to a domain's registration date, we cannot change the billing date, e.g. to have multiple domains billed together on the same date.
We cannot bill monthly, or only bill for a portion of the registration period if you don't need the domain anymore before the registration period expires.
How to check the domain's expiry / renewal date
If you are not sure when your domain(s) expires, you can check that, and the next billing date, in your dashboard.
If you have received an email or postal mail notification about your domain being at risk of expiring, but any or all of these are true, it's a scam, and you can ignore it.
- It's not clear that it's from us, or there's an unfamiliar company name.
- You receive postal mail (we will never send postal mail).
- The renewal or service price is quite expensive or an odd amount.
- You don't think your domain is due for renewal or already recently paid for your renewal.
You're always welcome to get in touch with us with any questions or concerns as well. If you have any other questions about billing or your domains, just let us know.
