Hosting renewal

A quick question from a newbie who has only had a website for less than a year. When the hosting expires, do you have to pay for the domain name as well or is that a one time payment?

You have to renew your domain as well as your hosting. Both are equally important for your website to keep online.

Thanks for that clarification RHCalvin. I've never let my web hosting service expire but is it true that once it expires, the files are removed from the web server and become inaccessible?

Most of the time I renew for the 2 years. And this way I can keep control on the expenses made for the website. I have not much earned in such context. But it would be worth checking out how it goes for my website. I renew the domains through auto renewal on godaddy. But hosting I renew on 2 year basis.

Once hosting expires it is true that the website is deleted and files are removed. Shouldn't be a problem though, you should have made a backup regularly and downloaded the backup for safekeeping.

I would like to point out that domain renewal might not be necessary though. Certain hosting websites offer domain for lifetime, no need to pay more. Well, as long as you are using their hosting service and your site is up I would guess.

Domain renewal and hosting renewal are two separate things unless you get a free domain name with hosting. Never tried that so I do not know if you lose your domain free domain name or not.

I know, but that was the part of the question he asked about :)
