My domain has automatically renewed without me being aware of this and money has now gone out of my bank account.
I want to cancel my domain so, so no money will go out next year.
I can't find anywhere on this site to do this, only a renew button
can anyone help?
There is an explanation in the My Accountsection of the Wiki
You instructed a person who wants to know how to delete/cancel their domain by simply telling him/her to delete their credit card info. But, what if I have too many websites and want to only delete/cancel a few of them? Isn't there a cancel/delete tab to get rid of the domain name?
You cannot cancel a domain name, once it is registered you have got it for the duration of the registration period. That's nothing to do with Bravenet who register it on your behalf, its just how the international registration process works.
Remember a domain name is just a label for your site. You can transfer the domain to somebody else or attach it to a different site or delete your existing site and leave it "unconfigured" but the one thing you cannot do is cancel it. Your web hosting and your domain name are two independent arrangements.
Hi Peter! :) I apologize, I didn't mean "cancel" my domain. I meant, how does a person delete it so I don't have to pay for a domain I no longer want. I've been told how to do it before, but I forgot how. Please tell me again? Thanks a lot!
click on domains
forgot how to go from there as I don't have an account but it was straight forward
There are two ways to give up a domain:
1. Transfer it to somebody else. There are people who make money by registering names that they hope will be popular and then selling them at a profit.
2. Don't renew it when it expires.
Unless you have found yourself sitting on a name which Apple or Nokia are going to use for the next consumer "must have" option 1 is probably a non starter.
Option 2 is covered by my original post.
Deleting the associated site is a totally separate process.
