Renewing A Google Domains Registered Domain

All good things must come to an end. So did the first year of my Google Domains registered domain.

Fortunately, renewing took but a few minutes.

Just login to Google Domains (or, click on a bookmark) - and start with "My domains", and the domain in question.


Find the domain, in need of renewal. Click on the expiry period. Here we see "366 days", because I already renewed.



Find the Registration wizard, and click on "Add years".



Select a time period. You can select from 1 to 8 years - no more awkward yearly renewal, for those who like to reduce the stress.



Then, Review your purchase. Change the bank account, if necessary. And, hit "Buy".


The next message said "A receipt has been emailed to you.", and that was that.

The receipt is in my Inbox, and Registration now shows expiry at one more year in the distance (as above).

It's taken way longer to write this, than it did to Buy the registration renewal.

It looks like Google Domains is one of the better designed Google Services. The renewal portion of the Registration wizard certainly could not be simpler.

If you do not live in the USA, my condolences.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
