If the domain name is free with your account and you only want to keep it and cancel the account, then you could do that from your Client Area -> Billing tab -> Cancel Services. Then click Cancel next to the entry for your hosting account and process its cancellation. On Step 3 you will be given a choice to keep the domain name or not. If you choose to keep the domain name, it will be kept active but it will no longer be renewed for free.

If your domain name is not free with the account, then if you let the hosting account expire, the domain name will not be affected by the cancellation as it is listed as a separate renewal in our system.

Auto Renew helps protect you from losing your domain name registration. If your domain name registration is set to Auto Renew, your account will be automatically charged approximately sixty (60) to ninety (90) days prior to the end of your term period.

If Auto Renew is not set up in your account, you will need to renew your domain name registration through the Account Manager.

Renew my domain and associated services

You can renew a domain name at any time. Simply enter the domain name(s) in the form below or use the domain order interface on our site. 
You will be asked to renew this domain(s), as well as any associated services (like hosting) for a period of X months and/or years depending on the product. 
The renewal will take effect after your payment has been confirmed. Please note that the renewal does not change the anniversary date of your domain name and/or service, so nothing is lost by renewing your products before they expire, and you avoid any inconvenience due to an oversight.
