What's the problem with your paypal payment? The best way is to renew using your paypal. Check DH panel --> Billing --> Manage accounts.
I think so because DH states very clearly that donation will go to your account.
The current price of one year of level 1 plan is 7.95/mon and around 95.4/year
check DH panel --> Home --> Donations (to you)
Did I miss anything?
