Your choices are quite limited with an Enterprise Linux release.  You've
got a few though:
1.  Visit Red Hat Sales and purchase another annual subscription.  When
you do this, you'll be enabled for another year.
2.  Purchase a retail copy of Red Hat Professional Workstation and
register that.  Technically, it's identical to RHEL WS and there is an
offer out there for Pro Workstation users to migrate to RHEL WS for 3
years at $69/year.

The only place you can get Red Hat built updates for RHEL is from Red
Hat.  They're not freely available.

You could also attempt to migrate from RHEL to one of the rebuilds like
Tao, CentOS, or White Box Linux.  I've never tested this and don't know
what issues you will run into.  It probably shouldn't be tried for
people who want it "to be very basic for dummies".
