The.DEV extension is a secure namespace, so you need HTTPS and an SSL certificate for your website to load on most browsers. Due to these SSL requirements, domain forwarding is not supported for .DEV domains unless the domain is hosted on a server, either at GoDaddy or third-party, and has an SSL Certificate associated to it. To make this easier, your .DEV registration includes a free Standard SSL certificate valid for one year. You can learn more on how to activate your SSL Certificate here.

If auto-renew is enabled on a .DEV domain, we’ll attempt to auto-renew your .DEV domain on its expiration date. In cases where auto-renew fails after the first billing attempt or auto-renew was not enabled at all, we’ll park your .DEV domain name. A parked domain name will show a temporary web page when entering the domain in a web browser. If the domain isn't manually renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.
For priority pre-registration please use the following information: The application fee is refundable only if the domain is not awarded to a customer. In those cases where you are not awarded the domain, you are eligible for a full refund for price of domain plus the Early Application fee. This fee is non-refundable in cases where you win the domain. If you win the domain, then decide to cancel it before the grace period ends, you will only receive a refund for the domain price and will not receive a refund for the Early Access Fee.
For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the STANDARD REFUND TERMS, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. So also take a look under:
