GoDaddy Renewal Coupons Updated for May 2016:
For all of our regular GoDaddy promo codes you can click here. We also have promo codes for: Web Hosting, SSL certificates, and VPS Hosting (promo codes that work for shared hosting don’t work for VPS hosting plans, and vice versa).
If you have lots of domain names under your management, then we recommend that you join GoDaddy’s new “Discount Domain Club”. Essentially you join their club for $7.50/month (we have a code for 33% off club membership in our list below) and you get exclusive offers and discounts for your domain names. In case you’re wondering why we don’t just join the club, take the codes, and then give them to you: well, we tried that. The codes only work for people who are in GoDaddy’s VIP club. If you only have one or two domains, then the discount domain club doesn’t really matter all that much.

GoDaddy has discontinued many of their promo codes related to renewals. The result has been a mass exodus from GoDaddy (they have lost over 200,000 domain registrations in the past two months). However there are some renewal coupons and all-purpose coupon codes that will still work.
Again, we’re very sorry about GoDaddy’s recent decision to suspend all renewal promo codes. We will still try to give you all the best promo codes that will work for GoDaddy customers like you who are in this situation.
GoDaddy Transfer Coupon Codes:
Some of you may be all fed up with the lack of renewal codes flying around right now, and are willing to transfer your domain out to other budget-friendly domain registrars like Namecheap. Well, these promo codes will help you to save on domain transfers.

Godaddy Renewal FAQ:
You can renew your domain name for as little as 1 more year to as much as 5 more years. If you find a great promo code (like the ones provided above!), then it might be more cost-effective to lock in the discounted price for up to five years. Five years is the maximum you can register a domain name.
After countless hours searching, we combed over GoDaddy’s rules for expired domain names, and we’ll lay them all out here. First, if you turn off GoDaddy’s default “auto-renew” feature, and your domain name expires, you have an 18 day grace period where you can still renew it for no extra cost. Why 18 days? We have no idea.
After 18 days, you can still renew your domain name, but there will be an $80 redemption fee (ouch!). This period lasts from day 18 to day 42. After day 42, your domain name will then go into a public auction where anyone can bid on the domain name. You can get the domain name back by bidding on it, but you will need to outbid everyone else. This is a very risky way to get your domain name back.
According to ICANN regulations, if your domain name has just expired, you can still transfer your domain name if it is expired. So if you want to switch domain registrars, you don’t have to pay for renewal at your old domain registrar before transferring it over to your new registrar.
Most of the time, you will save more if you renew multiple domains at the same time. Many GoDaddy codes have a “minimum purchase”, and the more you buy, the higher the percentage of savings. So renewing a few domain names (and other products like hosting and website builders) at the same time will create more savings. Just don’t let your domain names expire while you’re waiting, or you may get hit with that terrible “redemption fee” we mentioned earlier.
You don’t have to wait for renewal to do this. In fact, you can do it at anytime. Just go to Domain Manager->Manage DNS and you’ll see the CNAME record about halfway down the page. Make sure that the “WWW” points to “@” (see image below) and then both the WWW and non-WWW versions of your URL will work just fine.
This actually happened once. I purchased a domain name via auction, and a few days later I received a phone call from the previous owner. It was a small company and they had unknowingly let their domain name expire. I transferred it back to them, and they were very grateful. I didn’t pay very much for it, so I didn’t ask for any compensation.
But this situation depends on the kindness of the domain purchaser. They hold all the cards. After they purchase the domain, their contact details can be accessed via the WHOIS database. You can contact them and ask for the domain name back. But it is entirely up to them whether they decide to help you out or not. They may ask for a lot of money, or just flat out refuse to return it. That’s why you should make sure you renew your domain name early (or renew for multiple years) so that you never have to be in this situation.

By default your domains will auto-renew every year at full price. Do yourself a favor and either turn off auto-renew, or make sure you renew your domains long before they are set to expire. Here’s a video on how to turn them off:
