How to Renew a Domain Name for Free
Before we explain how you can renew the domain for free, let us first know What is Alligatortool? and Why you need to renew your domain using it? and How do we offer this service for free?
AlligatorTool is a licensed domain registration company that has been operating since 2018 internationally and it is also a domain tool that helps you search for domains including
The bottom line is that we are a domain registrar, now to know why we register domains for free, simply because we can, our company relies on a financing system that does not depend on the user paying money for the service unlike all other companies, but rather we finance the service through sponsored ads and offers from other companies, and whatever profit we make we share it with the user by providing the service for free.
When you want to register a domain through us, you will find that you are required to complete an offer in exchange for domain registration, these offers are from sponsors working with us, and whenever a user completes a specific offer (which can be a survey or downloading an app...), we will get a commission and we will share this commission with our users by registering the domain they want for free. This is simply the idea of AlligatorTool.
How do I renew the domain with you for free?

Please note that the transfer may take up to 7 days depending on your registrar.
3. Update your contact information.
We will contact you during the transfer process to update your contact information, you have to make sure that your contact information is updated on your current registrar in order to complete the transfer.
Log in to your current registrar's control panel and check your account details. Make sure your name, phone number, and physical address are all correct — any missing information could cause the transfer to take longer or be rejected.
4. Set up your email sending domain name.
Your domain registrar often provides email service tied to your domain name — this lets you send emails to and from addresses like [email protected] and can help grow your brand or business.
But, when you transfer the domain, these email accounts are typically deactivated which potentially leaves you out of the loop. Make sure you have a backup email address ready to go before starting the transfer process.
Once the domain is released by your original provider, we will need time to configure your domain and servers. This typically takes anywhere from a few days to a week. During this time, your website should remain accessible from your previous registrar.
FAQs and Troubleshooting
How long does a domain transfer take?
The domain transfer process usually takes 5 to 7 days, but it can take longer if your information is out-of-date or they can’t verify your identity.
Is it free to transfer a domain?
Yes on AlligatorTool and No on other registrars, although the fee and structure varies. Some registrars, like GoDaddy, charge a flat fee for the transfer itself. All registrars will charge you a registration fee when your domain is up for renewal. Some will bundle both costs (renewal and transfer fee) together.
I don’t know who my registrar is. What do I do?
Look up your domain name on the Whois Lookup tool. Under the “REGISTRAR INFORMATION” title, you will find out the name of your registrar.
I’ve just purchased a domain. Why can’t I transfer it to Alligatortool?
Your DNS registrar has placed your domain name under a 60-day Change of Registrant lock. Additionally, if you’ve recently made a previous transfer, you can’t change your registrar for the next 60 days.
How do I get an authorization code? Where can I find this code?
Every DNS registrar will be different, so we’ve compiled a list of helpful links to help you get an Auth-Code. Find your registrar’s specific instructions below:

There are a few reasons why your request may have been denied.
There could be a discrepancy between your information and that of the domain owner. Alternatively, they can’t verify that you’re the owner. Make sure your contact information is up to date, and be sure to send what they need from you (ID, domain purchase receipt, and so on).
The domain name owner may have sent an objection to the transfer. If you’re not the domain name owner, be sure to get in contact with them to resolve the issue.
If you owe your DNS registrar any fees from previous domain purchases, they may have put your domain name on hold. Be sure to pay any outstanding amount owed.
Your domain name may still be under “Lock” in your portal. Make sure this setting is set on “Unlocked.”
Alternatively, you may be under the 60-day Change of Registrant lock, in which case you’ll have to wait 60 days to make the transfer.
What if my domain has expired? Can I still transfer it to another registrar?
