Automatic Domain Renewal (Auto Renew) is designed to assist the vast majority of customers. It helps make sure their domain names do not expire and therefore drop off to the public. Auto Renew is on by default for each domain name for this reason.
We strongly recommend keeping Auto Renew turned ON for your domain names such as YourName.com or YourCompanyName.com.
While most find this feature helpful, we understand there are some circumstances where Auto Renew is not practical; such as a limited time marketing campaign. An example of this would be real estate agents who purchase a domain such as 123AnyStreet.com to help market a property for their client or 2011SummerFest.com meant only to be used for a single summer.
In this case, we recommend you turning off Auto Renew if you do not intend to keep the domain in future years.
Here are the steps to turn off Auto Renew
Login to your account on DomainDad.com
You should be on the Domain Manager page. You will see a toolbar that reads from left to right: Navigation >>, then has a few icon pictures that includes a clipboard, sprocket, pen and canvas, servers, envelope, file card, folder and envelope with an arrow.
Click on the sprocket to get the the General Settings.
You are done and the domain name will not Auto Renew.
