What are Auto-Renew Only Domain Names?

Certain domain names are Auto Renew only. These Auto-Renew only domains cannot be manually renewed.

The invoice must be paid 30 days before the Renewal Deadline for the domain to be renewed. The registrant will lose the domain name if payment is not make 30 days before Renewal Deadline, despite how much time remains on the registration. To ensure that you do not lose your domain name, please make sure that you setup payment to be CC batch so that it gets charge and renewed automatically.

The effective date for the change will take place on December 1st, 2016. This will affect domain that need to be renewed starting January 1st, 2017. Any TLDs that if on the Auto-Renew Domain only list will be affected. They will need to be renew 30 days before the Renewal Deadline

Renewal Deadline is the domain expiration date based on the TLD registry.

? How to Cancel my Domain?
It is your responsibility to notify MochaHost’s via our Cancellation Form to cancel any domain registration at least thirty (30) days prior to the renewal date. No refunds will be given once a domain is renewed. All domain registrations and renewals are final.
? Why setup auto payment?
To ensure that you do not lose your domain name, we suggested that you setup your account to process with CC auto or PayPal Subscription. If you do not renew your domain on time, you will lose the domain name.

Some Registry will auction the expired domain name or have a grace period for the domain name to be able to get register as new.

Domain names, not renewed on time might go into an RGP stage. Renewing a domain name in this Redemption Grace Period costs additional $250.

We received almost a perfect score (4.5 out of 5) from cnet, and have been included in their Best Hosts of 2021 listing. Below is a quote from the official editorial review on cnet:

"The company has a wide range of offerings, but by far, the stand-out feature MochaHost provides is a 180-day money-back guarantee. That's the best we've seen so far, and it removed just about all of the risk from any hosting experience.

Overall, we were impressed with how customer-centric the company's offerings are. For example, unlike some of the hosting providers we've profiled (and deducted points from), MochaHost's published prices don't balloon once you've settled in with their service. They have a lifetime price-lock guarantee

They got other customer-centric bonuses for 24/7 support, including 24/7 toll-free callback phone support, free domain name and SSL certificates for as long as you remain a MochaHost customer, a website builder with 500 free templates (and a service that will custom-design your site if you need), a site migration service. In addition, all plans are e-commerce ready and come with free shopping cart software."
