5: Then we saw a popup window to let us buy extra features on domains, we just click Next and Finish button to ignore them. You should not do either if you do not want to pay extra money but just renew domains;

6: We were accessed to CheckOut screen, here we could adjust the domain renewal years, add new features if you want, and we had chance to input Godaddy promo code to get discount, but it was not easy to find a Godaddy promo code in recent years, most of time you have to wait Godaddy gives you promo code by emails; or Godaddy gives you discount automatically when you check out;

7: For checking out, you just do the similar process with any other online purchasing checking out; “Place your order” is the billing information submit button and checkout button, after you clicking it, check whether you received order successful message and confirm email. if yes, then your Godaddy renewal process finished, and your domains got renewed.
