    You have to take off automatic renew. They also let you know constantly by email if your domain is going to expire and if it will be automatically renewed. I believe they even also let you know when you first buy the domain.

    Incorrect.
    God@ddy's site is so retarded (due to all their upselling rubbish), it takes more than 1 minute to perform such an easy, straightforward, f*ck-simple task.
    Next time you do it, clock it.
    Few things in life get me on my t*ts, but Nogod@ddy is one of them.

    Sometimes God@ddy DOES take a while to open their menus, since it's all flashy and stuff, always gonna be glitchy. But thats not the point, the point is they're assholes lol and their commercials suck, targeting wrong ppl.

    Transfer all your stuff to namecheap. Only registrar i'll use since i've switched.

    Google is iffy to say the least, GoDaddy is Garbage, Namecheap is :D

    I learned that whenever there is any chance for a big company
    to get an extra billing increment, they will take it.

    So after losing $500+ for years to renewals, etc. ( that's only 30 domains )
    I simply change my "web" credit card EVERY YEAR
    and update it for the ones I want to actually renew.

    I get a whole bunch of emails and some phone calls:

    AGENT ON PHONE:
    "Sir your domain will expire in 10 days and we failed
    to renew it automatically with the credit card on file..."

    ME:
    "Ya, I change my credit card now because you guys
    keep resetting the Auto Renew checkmark like a
    bunch of whores who think they won't lose their
    merchant account."

    AGENT ON PHONE:
    "Sire, we don't do that."

    ME:
    "Yes you do, or you would not be calling me
    for a domain that I only needed for three months
    to sell tickets to a concert a year ago and
    DID NOT select or DESELECTED
    the auto renew option."

    AGENT ON PHONE"
    "Would you like to update your credit card now
    to avoid the loss of your domain?"

    ME:

    "Uh ...ok...just let me get my credit card"

    (Places agent on hold - goes to McDonald's Drive Thru )
