    This is rather odd; one of my old domain names that I have through 1and1 which I set to "not renew" at expiry has been renewed by 1and1 (25.09). They have not invoiced me for it (yet) and I have checked my Nominet account and it is still registered in my name. I have checked my 1and1 account and it is no longer in my list of domains!

    I think there's a grace period where you essentially have the rights, but you don't own it until you pay. I think that's 30-45 days, probably depends on the registrar. If it was going to auto-renew, it would have done so on day 1.

    I don't think this is domain registrar specific, so maybe drop it in https://www.acorndomains.co.uk/forums/general-board.18/ and you'll get a response from an experienced domainer (i.e. not me).

    It's the fact they have renewed it another two years in my name without my consent. I set it to "not renew" so I expect it to go through the usual Nominet cycle of suspension. They even sent me an email telling me it is expiring tomorrow because I opted not to renew it.
