Check Domain Name Status

How do I find out when a domain name expires?

 

The domain name is linked to our business email and I need to check it's status to be renewed.

 

It says the status of the domain is "active" but I can't find any specific information on the website.  

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance. Smiley Happy

Re: Check Domain Name Status

Thank You Jon! This was very helpfuil.  However, I have one more question...

 

 I am now confused who to contact about renewing the domain name. It says we have services with Comcast, but the Registrar is "DomainPeople" and says our name is on "Back Order".

 

I want to renew the name since it expires on February 6, 2015 - but I don't know who to contact. I did not set this up initially and I have no documentation.I don't want to have a disruption in service or change any email settings, etc.

 

Thank you for your kind assistance!

Re: Check Domain Name Status

Hello EKH,

 

Welcome to the forum.

To check the domain's historical data you will have to do a "lookup" on its record.

This is a third party site that can check it for you: who.is

Please use the following steps to complete the search.

1. Go to who.is site.

2. Type in your domain in the search box

3. Scroll Down to the "Raw Registrar Data"

4. Look for the line "Registrar Registration Expiration Date: "

 

Thank you

Re: Check Domain Name Status

EKH,

 

Thank you for the information.

guyspearman.com is currently hosted by Comcast as a custom domain.

As long as you have service with us the domain's registration will auto-renew by us.

 

 

Thank you
