1 Renewal restrictions
Your .es domain name must renew prior to its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether you manually renew it or let us auto-renew it.
You can manually renew your .es domain name in the Domain Manager when it is within 1 year of expiration. For more information, see Renew my domain.
If you do not manually renew your domain name, we attempt auto-renewal 54 days prior to its expiration date. If our auto-renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt auto-renewal 45 days prior to expiration. If our second attempt at auto-renewal fails, we make a final attempt 35 days prior to expiration.
If our final attempt to auto-renew the domain name fails and you did not manually renew it, we will park your domain and you must redeem it. There might be a redemption fee. See Renew my expired domain for redemption instructions.

See Transfer my domain to GoDaddy for information on the transfer process. Note that .es transfers are unique in three ways:

- You do not need to use an authorization codes. When transferring in, leave the authorization code field blank and just click on the authorization box to proceed.
- The Whois Admin contact receives an email containing approve and cancel links and has up to 10 days to approve or cancel the transfer. If the Whois Admin contact approves the transfer within 10 days, the transfer is complete.
- Due to registry limitations, no extra registration time is added to a .es domain name when you transfer it to us.
