Domain Auto-Renewal

In order to ensure you do not experience any interruption or loss of services associated with your Domain Name, we provide an automatic renewal "Auto-Renew" function for your domain names that are registered through HyperStreet.

  • This policy applies to any domain name which is linked to an account which has valid credit card details on file. All domain names will be opted-in for auto-renewal by default.
  • All eligible domain names will be auto-renewed for further registration periods prior to expiry, unless otherwise opted-out of auto-renewal in accordance with this policy. If any domain name is opted-out of Auto-Renewal, and you fail to manually renew that domain name, you may experience an interruption or loss of services associated with that domain name which may also be cancelled or registered by a third party. You may review the Auto-Renewal settings applicable to your domain names by logging into your billing account.
  • Terms and Payment
    • Auto-renewal of your Eligible Domain Name will be processed ten (10) days prior to expiry, and payment will be taken from the most recently used, updated or valid credit card in your Billing Account. The renewal fee charged will be based on (i) the applicable further registration period for your domain name (based on the last or most recent renewal or registration period); and (ii) our then-current prices as published online at http://www.hyperstreet.com (which you agree may be higher or lower than the previous fee paid for the preceding registration or renewal period).
    • You acknowledge and agree that (i) you authorise hyperstreet.com to process the payment of the renewal fee for your eligible domain name using the most recently used, updated or valid credit card details in your billing account, (ii) you are solely responsible for ensuring that these credit card details are current, and (iii) hyperstreet is not liable for any loss or damage suffered by you or any third party whatsoever in relation to the non-renewal of any domain name.
    • Domain name renewals are non-refundable. If we receive notice of a chargeback, reversal or payment dispute regarding any domain name we have auto-renewed for you, and you do not contact us immediately to provide alternative payment details, your domain name may be cancelled for non-payment.
  • Enrolment (Opt-in and Opt-Out)
    • All domain names registered with HyperStreet are automatically set up with "Auto-Renew" ON (enabled) by default.
    • You may manage the auto-renewal status of any domain name by logging into your Billing Account. Please note that (a) any opt-in of a domain name must occur no later than eight (8) days in advance of expiry, and (b) any opt-out of a domain name must occur prior to the successful processing of the auto-renewal event.
