Why am I getting charged double for a .com renewal? Being forced to pay for 2 years when the default profile is 1 year??? First time this has happened, have been with GD for many years. Anyone else have this happen?
Typically the auto-renewal is based on the amount of time last manually purchased. So if the domain in question was originally purchased for 2 years, then the same time is applied when auto-renewed.
You can change the time by manually renewing the name before it's expiration.
