How does Network Solutions charge for renewals?
Network Solutions has a process for renewals that is designed to protect our customers. When you purchase a domain product the account is automatically set to Auto Renew. This protects you from losing your domain name. Auto Renew ensures your domain name is safe by automatically charging the account approximately sixty (60) to ninety (90) days prior to the end of the term period.
Before your product expires, you will receive an automatic renewal reminder letting you know the date that your card will be charged. You may be asked to update your payment information if your credit card on file is invalid.
When an Automatic Renewal processes, you receive an email confirming the order and that the renewal was successful. This occurs 60 days before product expiration or if renewed on a later renewal attempt.
An Order Payment Failure email is sent when an automatic renewal fails. This occurs 60 days before product expiration and every failed attempt after, which occurs every 14 days to give you plenty of time to fix the issue before the product or service expires.
If Auto Renew is not set up, Network Solutions customers have to manually renew domain names through their Account Manager portal. That is also the same place to change your renew status to either turn it on for automatic renewals or turn it off to control domain renewals manually.

How can Network Solutions help me get new customers to my online business?
Whether you’re a new online business or you’ve been around for a few years, every business needs new customers. We’re here to help. Network Solutions has a variety of online marketing services to suit every type of business, big or small.
Our specialized Pay-Per-Click (PPC) agents are trained to assist businesses with online advertising in Google. This service allows a business to choose specific keywords and appear in Google’s ad positions at the top of search pages for those queries. Our PPC services can work for businesses with any size budget, with campaigns locally, internationally or both!
Our Facebook Marketing specialists are trained to assist businesses with social media marketing and advertising. They can target specific people who have interests that match your services and market directly to them, on their personal social media pages. This form of marketing is very effective when paired with sales or discount offers. Often times, potential customers will “shop around” and look for the best deals on different platforms. Instead of waiting for them to find you, we’ll bring them to you using engaging posts that describe your business.
Direct contact with customers from the business owner can add a personal touch to your social media pages, and potentially grow a more connected audience. Our social media marketing services give you the option to personally interact with customers if you choose.
There are so many ways that we can work with you on your primary mission to get new customers online. So if it’s not PPC or social media marketing, why not call us and ask us about our SEO or local business services? Network Solutions can help you grow your business, so reach out to us today to get the conversation started.
What are the best Network Solutions products to help me get online right away?
Network Solutions offers everything you need to get online quickly. From website development to optimization, social media, online advertising and more, we’ll have your business online in no time.
A personalized business website is the first step to getting your business online. We provide everything from simple do-it-yourself builders to custom-built advanced websites with all the bells and whistles. That means you can choose the right website for your business and your budget.
When building your online presence, it is also important that you factor in search engines and how people use them. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is one of the only ways people who don’t already know your business can find it online. Without keywords and search engine optimization, customers and clients can only find you by searching for your exact business name or web address, or by searching on social media. That means you miss out on thousands of searches about your products and services every month that take place in Google, Bing etc. We provide SEO services for all different types of businesses to allow you to target local, national and international search engines.
Once you have your website created and optimized for search engines, you need to look into digital marketing to amplify your online presence. When a new business goes online, it has to compete with older websites who have already worked to secure their space and ranking in the search engines. These websites once started where you are today but invested in marketing campaigns to find new customers.
Without marketing, your potential customers have to do a lot of work to find your business. You are asking customers to search through all of the other businesses who do market themselves online and have been doing so for years, to find your company and use you.
Online marketing can take many forms. For local businesses with a storefront, we recommend social media marketing to drive clientele to you. Online ratings, engagement, and multiple social accounts, factor in to your overall local presence and we can help with all of that.
For online businesses that need new customer leads now, we recommend Network Solutions Pay-Per-Click services that allow you to set aside a budget and advertise your business in the first one to four ad slots on Google. That means showing up at the top of search engine results pages today! Get in touch with our customer service to get your business online right away.
