Renewals

If auto-renew is enabled on a .NYC domain, we’ll attempt to auto-renew your .NYC domain on its expiration date. In cases where auto-renew fails after the first billing attempt or auto-renew was not enabled at all, we’ll park your .NYC domain name. A parked domain name will show a temporary web page when entering the domain in a web browser. If the domain isn't manually renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.

Refund Details

For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the STANDARD REFUND TERMS, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. So also take a look under:

  • PRODUCTS WITH SPECIAL REFUND TERMS > Domain Name Registrations/Renewals
  • PRODUCTS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REFUNDS
