Renewing a Non-Dreamhost Domain Through Dreamhost


#1

Hi everyone. I have a domain that is going to expire next month. At the time I took it out, I didn’t know about Dreamhost, so went with some other company that’s based who knows where. I received a renewal notice a few weeks back and I’d like to renew, but I want to renew through Dreamhost rather than through the service that I originally registered with. On the Domains page, I see how to take out a new domain, but not how to renew an existing one. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Transfer it. And quick. It takes about a week, so you’ll want to have the transfer complete before it expires. A transfer includes a one-year renewal.
