Godaddy also has an "auto-renew" feature so that you don't
inadvertently lose your domain name.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: So the Public Interest Registry *could*
do the same thing if they felt like it; either 'renew' or put a short
hold on a URL pending a final notice to the owner. Of course that
might put a crimp in things for the penis enlargement company and the
pornographers. I am still waiting to hear from Mr. Mikka K. who came
to us through the garynuman mail server in Calgary, Alberta who has
insisted that PIR *had* to do it the way they did, shoving internet
history out of the way, and rolling out the red carpet for Bealo, SA.
Imagine, the same day PIR bumped me out, they moved Bealo SA right
in. I sure hope I did not cause them any inconvenience. PAT]
