How do I Disable Domain Name Auto Renew?

If you have a credit card on file in your account at KartHost your domain names will automatically renew, if Auto Renew is "Enabled". However, if you no longer wish to keep a domain name and do not wish your domain name to renew you will need to Disable the Domain Name Auto Renew feature.
(Note: if you do not keep a card on file, the Auto Renew will act as a Auto Reminder and it will be your responsibility to renew the domain name before expiration)

NOTE: If you are Disabling Auto within 30 days of the expiration date, you MUST contact KartHost Customer Service (Billing Support Ticket) to have that invoice cancelled if that is the only line item, OR, have the domain name renewal line item removed from the invoice if other items are on the invoice. We can not give refunds for domain name renewals.

Disabling Auto Renew:

1) Make sure your logged into your KartHost Customer Center account. On the navigation bar click on "Domains". A resulting drop down menu will appear and click on "My Domains"
Alternatively - you click click the box showing "XX Domains".
