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:
You should renew your .ws domain name by its expiration date.
We attempt auto-renewal on the domain name's expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal five days later, and we make a final attempt seven days after that.
If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 12th day after its expiration date, you can attempt to recover it, and there might be a fee to do so. See Renew my expired domain for more information.
For example: Your .ws domain name expires on October 10. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on October 10, October 15, and October 22. If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by October 29, you can attempt to recover it.
