How do I Disable Domain Name Auto Renew?

updated February 25, 2021

If you have a credit card on file in your KartHost Customer Center Account 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. The Domain Name Owner is responsible for this action.
(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 Regarding Invoices: If a Invoice for your Domain Name Renewal has been generated. AFTER disabling Auto Renew, you will want to go check your Invoice that has your domain name renewal on it and CONFIRM either the Invoice has been Cancelled (if the domain name is the ONLY line item on it), OR if there are other line items on said Invoice, the Domain Name Renewal Line Item has been removed from a multi-line item Invoice. Please understand we can NOT refund 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".
