The non-renewal of a service can have serious consequences on the site and in particular if you do not renew your PRO domain name option. Indeed, by voluntarily letting your domain name expire, you must be aware that this can cause many inconveniences in terms of referencing for your site, for the management of messaging related to your domain or for the operation of your site in general.

From the point of view of messaging linked to your domain:
you will no longer be able to use it to receive or send emails. For example, if you have entered an e-mail address linked to your domain as the address for receiving messages sent from a contact form or if you have used it for your store settings, etc., this will then cause malfunctions on your site.

In this case, you will have to change the address of each image inserted on your site, in HTML or reload all the images in your manager. The best solution is to renew
