5. Done! Auto payment is set up, and you don’t have to worry about whether you have enough funds on your account.

How to renew a server

Dedicated and virtual servers are renewed automatically if you have enough funds in your account. If you want to renew the service, just make sure that there’s enough funds in your account.

You can top up the balance manually in your personal account. Click Add funds on the dashboard, and then you will be taken to the page where you can choose a payment method.

Frequently asked questions

What happens if my account doesn’t have the required funds for renewal?

If there’s not enough funds on the account, the server will be automatically suspended. After a certain period of time, it will be deleted (the period depends on the type of server).

Can I turn off the auto-renewal option?

Auto-renewal can only be disabled for dedicated servers. You can do this when ordering a server or in your personal account later.

If you don’t want the VPS rental to be extended, manually remove the server when the paid period ends.

Important notes

Funds for auto renewal are debited once a month for dedicated servers and daily for virtual servers. If you ordered a VPS, we recommend that you check your balance more often and make sure that there’s always enough funds.

Auto-payment will save you from the need to constantly monitor the balance. But note that when configuring it, traffic overruns are not taken into account. Exceeding the limit must be paid for separately.
