As any good domainer would do, I inventory my domains on a monthly basis.
I determine which domains are worth investing more renewal fees in based on a few metrics of my own.
Well preparing for this month, I had a handful of domains that were to renew on the 1st of the month.
I typically pay for all of my domains a month at a time, using various discount codes when applicable.
When times permit and when I’ve sold a few domains more than my monthly goal, I try to take care of all of my domain name renewals at an annual rate.
This way I don’t have to worry about large domain renewal bills from month to month.
Because I am a Discount Domain Club member of Godaddy’s, I get a handsome discount for owning thousands of domain names.
This, in addition to GoDaddy discount codes, helps me to save a tremendous amount of money on an annual basis that an everyday person not in the club or using discount codes could not save.
But back to this month and domain renewals. This month, I had 135 domains that were set to auto renew.
I tend to watch my domains and their renewals very much like a hawk watches its prey.
So imagine my surprise when I logged into my GoDaddy account and viewed domains that were set to auto-renew had not been renewed.
