I recently received a domain registration renewal email from DreamHost. I only have one domain and I thought all DreamHost hosting plans include free registrations for one domain. Is this incorrect? Please let me know as I’m quite confused. Thanks!
Yup that is correct! Read the email carefully, it may just tell you we’re going to renew the domain, not that we’re going to charge you for doing it!
If it does look like we’re going to charge you, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and have them check to make sure it’s correctly tied to your hosting account and therefore free.
We send renewal reminders every time we’re going to renew a domain because frequently people don’t want them anymore (even if they’re free!).
