DreamHost is the ultimate hosting provider out there. There no doubt about this. DreamHost offers the best hosting solution. Do you know that DreamHost is also a domain name registrar? Yes, you can register a domain name through DreamHost.
Well, you can register a domain name at every web hosting provider but those are not domain name registrar. They use third party service to offer the registration process. DreamHost is ICANN approved domain name registrar. You can register almost more than 350 TLDs. You can register a choice of your domain from the given TLDs.
When you register a domain name at the DreamHost, you will get an option to auto renew it or get notification when the domain is about to expire. If you have selected auto renew option then there is no issue but that requires you to set the credit card details in payment page. If you haven’t set auto renew option then you will get notification almost one month before the expiration of the domain name. In this article, I will show you how to renew the domain name at DreamHost.
