Domain Renewals

Renewal fees will be required starting July 1st, 2024.

Domains expiring before this date will be renewed at no cost, as long as they have Auto-Renew enabled.

A renewal fee of 10 HNS is required for each 2-year renewal period.

The fee is to cover mining fees and help offset operational costs. The fee is automatically deducted from your HNS balance at the time of onchain renewal. Due to the minimal fee, we do not offer bulk discounts.

The Auto-Renew setting is enabled by default.

You can control Auto-Renew for each domain in your Domain Manager. You can use the Bulk Update feature of the Domain Manager to manage the Auto-Renew setting for a large number of domains (100k per upload). TLDs staked in the Namebase Registry or HNS.ID will be renewed automatically at no cost.

Renewal Notifications & Dashboard

There is a new Renewals section of the user dashboard that shows upcoming domain renewals and the total HNS required. Additionally, users will receive a weekly summary email detailing any domains renewing in the next 90 days, and the total fees required.

Important: We can only guarantee domain renewals when they are set at least 10 days before their expiration date. Maintaining the necessary HNS balance is the best way to ensure your domains are renewed on time. Namebase cannot recover expired domains, and they will become available for auction again.

We will notify all customers at least 30 days in advance of any further change to the renewal policy.
