Renew Domain

To renew your domain, the following methods are available.

  • Online Invoices
  • Credit or Pre-paid Card
  • External Agent
  • Cheque/Bank Drafts


If an invoice has been issued (which is generally issued a few weeks before the expiry date for a domain), you can view the invoice from menu Billing ⇒ Invoices , and pay them using the options displayed on the invoice page (e.g. domain credit, credit card, paypal, etc).

If no invoice is issued (e.g. for advance renewal), you can issue invoice yourself under menu My DomainsManage Domains and select the domains checkboxes and then choose "Invoice For Payment" action under "Perform Bulk Actions".


From menu Billing ⇒ Pay Domains, you can pay directly for a domain using prepaid card or credit card.


You can ask an external agent (ISP, Reseller, Domain registration company, etc) to pay for your domains on your behalf.


Please make cheques payable to 'PKNIC (PVT) Ltd' and write your .PK account number (or domain name for renewal only) on the back of the cheque. Please also print and include the payment slip with your payment. Your payments may be sent as under:
