How to renew a domain name

Reviewed on 12 February 2024Published on 26 May 2021

When you buy a domain name, you can use it for the period of time you registered it for, which is typically from one to ten years. When this period is nearing its end, you must renew your domain if you wish to keep using it.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Dedibox account logged into the console
  • A domain registered with Scaleway
  1. In your browser, navigate to the domain name renewal page. A list of your hosting packages and domain names displays.

  2. Select the domain name you want to renew, select a renewal period, and click Renew. You are directed to the Summary page.

  3. Check the summary of your renewal order and select your payment mode from the drop-down list. Agree to the terms and conditions, and click Confirm my order.


    You can also choose to activate automatic renewal of your web hosting and domain names. To do so, check the Activate automatic renewal box on the Summary page. Your services automatically renew 62 days before their expiry dates. As such, automatic renewal can only be activated 62 days before the expiration date of the service.

    You are redirected to the payment gateway to complete your payment.
