[ aws . route53domains ]



This operation renews a domain for the specified number of years. The cost of renewing your domain is billed to your Amazon Web Services account.

We recommend that you renew your domain several weeks before the expiration date. Some TLD registries delete domains before the expiration date if you haven't renewed far enough in advance. For more information about renewing domain registration, see Renewing Registration for a Domain in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--domain-name <value>
[--duration-in-years <value>]
--current-expiry-year <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--domain-name (string)

The name of the domain that you want to renew.

--duration-in-years (integer)

The number of years that you want to renew the domain for. The maximum number of years depends on the top-level domain. For the range of valid values for your domain, see Domains that You Can Register with Amazon Route 53 in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide .

Default: 1

--current-expiry-year (integer)

The year when the registration for the domain is set to expire. This value must match the current expiration date for the domain.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


To renew a domain

The following renew-domain command renews the specified domain for five years. To get the value for current-expiry-year, use the get-domain-detail command, and convert the value of ExpirationDate from Unix format.

This command runs only in the us-east-1 Region. If your default region is set to us-east-1, you can omit the region parameter.

aws route53domains renew-domain \
    --region us-east-1 \
    --domain-name \
    --duration-in-years 5 \
    --current-expiry-year 2020

To confirm that the operation succeeded, you can run get-operation-detail. For more information, see get-operation-detail.

The registry for each top-level domain (TLD), such as .com or .org, controls the maximum number of years that you can renew a domain for. To get the maximum renewal period for your domain, see the "Registration and Renewal Period" section for your TLD in Domains That You Can Register with Amazon Route 53 in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.

For more information, see Renewing Registration for a Domain in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.
