Enabling automatic renewal on your Shopify domain

If you've purchased a domain through Shopify, you can automatically renew your domain subscription in your Shopify admin so that your ownership doesn't expire.

To enable automatic domain renewal:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, and then click Domains (or press G W D).

  2. In the Manage domains section, click on the name of the domain you want to renew automatically.

    Domains admin highlight domain


    You need to renew your root domain only. All of your subdomains will renew automatically with the root domain.

  3. In the Domain Details section, check the Enable auto renew box:

    Individual domain highlight renew

Your domain will now renew automatically on the date shown:

Individual domain renew enabled highlighted


Domain invoices are excluded from your monthly subscription charges. You will be charged for your domain renewal separately.

What's next?

After you've enabled auto-renewal for the domain that you purchased through Shopify, you can set up email forwarding.
