Order and Manage Domains

Log in to the Client Area

Hover over the Domains dropdown and click the My Domains Link.

Navigating here will show a list of all domains your account has registered with Hostwinds.

Note: If you have many domains to sift through, the Domain Section provides the ability to organize them by domain names, due dates, auto-renew status, and current activation status. The wrench icon on the right of each domain gives access to the full management of an individual domain. You can use the drop-down for a quick look instead of showing popular management tools, like nameservers.

My Domain Explained

Domains: A list of the domain names you have registered. Clicking on this column will organize domains alphabetically from A-Z and Z-A.

Due Date: Date of when a domain registration is due. They are typically registered for a year's worth of time. Clicking on this column will organize from oldest to newest.

Auto-Renew: Displays whether a domain is set up for auto-renew once it reached its due date with "Enabled" or deactivated to not renew by displaying "Disabled." It can be toggled to show either of these two categories.

Status: Shows current state of domain; active, terminated, expired, canceled, pending, pending transfer, and transferred away. Category groups can organize it.

View Column

My Domains' left-hand side are two other columns, the "view" column, and the "actions" columns. The view column shows the total amount of domains in certain categories with a number to the right of each one. Selecting any of these columns will change what My Domain shows on the right, limiting any domains presently meeting the selected description.

Actions Column

The actions column has three categories. Selecting Renew will organize all active domains and provide renewable options next to each one. It will also show any expired domains informing you that they cannot renew them any longer.

The "Register a New Domain" tab will take you to our registration page, where you can check availability and pricing. Transfer a Domain will take you to our domain transfer portal if you wish to transfer a domain from another host to us.

Helpful Tips

You can use the "Edit Selection" drop-down to manage several active domains at once. You can select each active domain, and, for example, you can edit managing nameservers all at once. This is a helpful, quick tooltip if needing to manage several of your active domains at one time.
