1 Renewal restrictions
You must renew your .sg domain name by its expiration date.
If you set your domain name to auto-renew, we first attempt auto-renewal 21 days prior to the domain name's expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal 14 days prior to the domain name's expiration date. If the second attempt fails, we make a final attempt 7 days prior to the domain name's expiration date.
For example: Your .sg domain name expires on January 31st. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by January 24th. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on January 10th, January 17th, and January 24th.
If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it 7 days prior the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption. Please reach out to our award-winning GoDaddy Guides for help.
It can take up to 5 days for .sg domains to be active after renewal.
