    You currently can’t do more than one year at a time – you used to be able to purchase upgrades for more than one year at a time – the staff has said that they are working on some supper whiz bang system for more than one year upgrades at a time – that has been about a year out for around a year now – I will flag this for the staff and the will tell you “by the time you renew next year” – sorry I am a bit cynical on this – they old system let you do more than one year – but you needed to do the upgrade one year at a time (i.e. you needed to do two upgrades to get two years)

    the only option I have is Auto Renew? do I just hit that 5 times to extend it for 5 years?

    Auto renew is just what it says – automatically renew 30 days or so before an upgrade expires – for a single year – then wait a year for the button to show up again

    We’re working on a whole revamp for the store system, which will support bulk renewals, and will be around eventually when we’re able to get a break from more critical things.

    I’d say that it will be by the time your upgrade is due for renewal, but I can’t make any promises on that.

    Auxclass, are you saying if I hit autorenew now it will extend it for a year? or it automatically renews it 30 days before it expires?

    If you choose to use auto-renew, the domain will be automatically renewed each year 30 days prior to the expiration date.
