Premium Domains and Premium Renewal Pricing via API

Support for premium domains renewals has been implemented at HEXONET.  Please note that the commands below do not affect Non-premium domains and those remain unchanged by this update.

Premium domain names now are subject to a premium renewal price tag and will now  require an additional parameter for explicit RenewDomain and PayDomainRenewal requests.  This implementation is to prevent accidential renewals at higher premium domain name prices. The parameter 'CLASS' must match the price class of the respective premium domain (ie. for both RenewDomain and PayDomainRenewal):



Premium Renewal Pricing Control Panel

Premium domain renewal pricing can now also be reviewed through the Control Panel.  To enable the Premium Domains renewal pricing via cotnrol panel, please proceed as follows:
