If you renew a domain within the automatic renewal period of 45 days after renewal or expiration and then transfer that domain to another registrar during this same period (up to 45 days after renewing your registration), the period of 1 year is retracted by the registry and only the year(s) of the transfer is applied.

Therefore, in order to prevent this retraction, we recommend that you initiate registrar transfers before the automatic renewal period occurs at the time of expiration, or at least 45 days after you renew your domain registration.
