This is a weird problem associated with the purchase of domains through Google where the link only appears for payment for one year. However all those webmasters who want to keep the domain and want to renew for longer period can do so by shifting the domain to their e-registrar which is generally either e-nom or godaddy.
To make sure that you do not miss on your renewal through Google, make sure that you have set auto renewal in the billing tab and also have a back up payment option if the primary payment method fails. You can visit Google domain dashboard here.
How to Renew the domain Registered with Google Automatically?
If you purchased the Domain through Google, you should make sure that you have the renew option checked in your Google Apps account and a valid Google billing information has been verified as in certain countries Google has stopped Google checkout.
- Renewing Domain RegistrationYour initial domain registration is valid for one year. If subsequent registration renewal fails, you'll have several opportunities to change your billing information and renew your registration:
- On your renewal date - If you've chosen automatic renewal and the charge fails, we'll send you a notification of the failure with instructions on updating your billing information. If you update your billing information within three days of the attempted charge, we'll detect the change and bill you for the renewal using the new information.
- Within 19 days of your renewal date - If you don't update your billing information within three days of the attempted charge, contact the support team for assistance with your renewal. If you contact our team within 19 days of the failed charge, we'll send you information allowing you to update your billing information and renew your registration.
- More than 19 days after your renewal date - If we're unable to bill you for registration renewal within 19 days of your expiration date, you won't be able to renew your domain through Google Apps. Instead, you'll need to contact your domain registrar directly. You may experience an interruption of service after your domain expires.
- If you don't renew domain registration within the 19-day window of opportunity, your domain name will be 'vaulted' by the registrar company (GoDaddy(dot)com or eNom(dot)com). A 'vaulted' domain name is not publicly available for registration, nor can it be redeemed without additional charges.
(a) To recover a 'vaulted' domain, you must contact the registrar company to re-obtain the domain at an additional fee of $89 for GoDaddy(dot)com and $250 for eNom(dot)om. You can find contact information for Godaddy(dot)com or eNom(dot)com in the Advanced DNS settings section of the control panel.
(b) If you don't take action, the registrar company holds the 'vaulted' domain name for up to six months before releasing it for public sale.
