How to Control Auto-Renew

When Auto Renew is turned on, your domain name will be renewed approximately sixty (60) days prior to its expiration date for the same term the domain name was last registered or renewed. You will be contacted by email when your credit card on file will be charged for the renewal. Please be sure you have a valid credit card and valid email address on file to ensure the continuation of service.

Note: Only the account holder/primary contact or account administrative contact of record on the account can activate the Auto Renew feature.

How to Manage the Transfer Lock

Every domain name registration with Web.com comes with the free transfer lock feature enabled. When turned on, the transfer lock helps to block the transfer of your domain name to another registrar. It protects from domain hijackers or others who may attempt to authorize a transfer of your domain name registration. 

With transfer lock turned on, you can still perform legal name changes and connect your domain name to web services. To transfer a domain name to another registrar, you must first turn off the transfer lock. To turn the transfer lock on/off, please refer to What are the Different Types of Domain Locks?
