Who can register .cloud domains?

Anyone can register .cloud domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.

Renewals

Note: .cloud domains cannot be manually renewed.

We'll attempt to auto-renew your .cloud domain on its expiration date. We'll park .cloud domain names after the first failed billing attempt. If the domain isn't renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.

Refund details

For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page.

Most domains will follow the Standard Terms, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. Look under BOTH of the following categories:

  • Products with Special Refund Terms (look under Domain Name Registrations/Renewals)
  • Products Not Eligible for Refunds

Nameserver requirements
