    domian auction bid

    Hi I recently won a bid for a domain that I previously owned which has already expired. I was surprised that the total cost also included a renewal fee on top of the bid amount.

    Hope to get your thoughts about this.

    Hello @shaunski!


    Thank you for posting. All expired domain auctions include the registration fee for the first year in the price. It's because the domain is expired and needs to be brought current.
